Claire Bidwell Smith, therapist, grief expert and author of three books, returns to the Remembering A Life podcast to talk about her book The Rules of Inheritance, a memoir about the years before and after the deaths of both of her parents. In this episode we explore the unique grief that follows the death of a parent and how Claire, having lost both parents by age 25, began and continues on her complicated grief journey. We’ll also talk about how she keeps the memories of her parents alive for herself and her children who were never able to meet their grandparents.
