“You Can Change Your Story”: How I Coped With the Loss of My Mother

Share this story with friends

David LaBelle's last memory of his mother was seeing her washed away in a raging flood when he was a senior in high school. She would never be found. 

It took David years to wrestle with the loss, and eventually he decided to write a semi-fictional book about the event called ​Bridges & Angels as a therapeutic exercise.  

David's books (and photos) can be found on his website.
