Gary Roe is a writer, speaker, and chaplain with Hospice Brazos Valley. He is the author of Heartbroken: Healing from the Loss of a Spouse, a new Amazon Bestseller, Surviving the Holidays Without You, and the co-author, with New York Times Bestseller Cecil Murphey, of Saying Goodbye: Facing the Loss of a Loved One and Not Quite Healed. With over 250 grief-related articles in print, he is a popular speaker at a wide variety of venues. Gary’s story began with a childhood of sexual abuse and numerous other losses. When his life unraveled as a teen, another family took him in and changed the trajectory of his life. Eager to help others heal and grow, his heart turned outward. After three decades of walking through deep valleys with many people, Gary has come to believe that: we've all been wounded; healing isn't for sissies; we’re all designed for impact; the world needs us; and we must heal.
