Good-bye, Vivi!Book - 1998
Then Vivi gets sick and dies. Granny helps the children come to terms with their loss by showing them that their memories of Vivi can keep the bird singing in their hearts. Later, when Granny herself dies, her wise words -- and the special gift she leaves them -- help Molly and Will deal with their grief and find solace in their loving memories of Granny.
Antonie Schneider has written a hopeful, helpful story about loss and recovery.
