On National Sibling Day, Don’t Forget Departed Sibling

Castro Valley, California (EastBayDaily) — Yesterday was National Sibling Day and many people celebrated their brothers and sisters, but what about those who have lost a sibling? Did they celebrate their sibling? certainly they did. In the second edition of his book MAKING LEMONADE: Choosing A Positive Pathway After Losing Your Sibling author Zander Sprague encourages people to celebrate their lost sibling, “Make a choice every day to keep them warm in your heart and life”

Sprague, the GO TO speaker, author and coach for sibling loss, and father of two, worked along with five friends who also lost siblings and penned a book Making Lemonade: Choosing A Positive Pathway After Losing Your Sibling which emphasizes the fact that siblings have a choice on how they want to deal with thier loss. The book’s workshops created a groundswell across the country populated with sibling survivors still wrestling with their loss.

“I realized quickly through my own experience that you might be prepared for lots of things in your life, losing your sibling is not one of them,” states Sprague. The second edition of the book has just been released and is available in hard cover, soft cover and e-book formats. “Since I first wrote the book, I again suffered the loss of a sibling, this time my sister in-law at age 35” states Sprague. “Surprisingly, my brother in-law remarried a woman who is also a sibling survivor, and she contributed to this edition of MAKING LEMONADE: Choosing A Positive Pathway After Losing Your Sibling,” said Sprague.

On National Sibling day let us celebrate all of our siblings, living and dead. Sprague states "I choose everyday whether I want to talk about my sister and to define my loss not have it define me. Siblings are the ‘Lost’ survivors of death. I am personally on a mission to have us all be found.”
