"Marjorie Kunch, an Orthodox Christian mother and mortician, has written some wonderful Orthodox picture books, When My Baba Died and When My YiaYia Died. The books are a true blessing to the children who read them, and at the same time they give parents a roadmap for helping our children process death — a roadmap that is all the more useful and precious to parents who are themselves struggling through the grieving process.

Marjorie’s books walk a child both through questions about heaven and what death means, and through the more concrete details of what they can expect at an Orthodox funeral. When a beloved family member dies, children are anxious about death itself as well as the details of the funeral process, so Marjorie’s beautiful illustrations and clear explanations are perfectly designed to allay those fears.

For older children, those who read and might enjoy a more interactive experience, Marjorie has put together a very helpful companion workbook which offers ways for them to personalize the funeral experience and provides meaningful ways to help children participate in saying goodbye. In addition to encouraging them to incorporate their own memories and feelings about their loved one, the workbook asks open-ended questions that will encourage them to express their feelings. Marjorie includes icons to color, a recipe for Koliva to prepare together as a family (further including them in the church services), Bible verses to look up, and a comforting prayer families can recite together.

With the combination of the picture book and workbook, Marjorie (a mother herself) has created a resource that will truly bring your family’s experience into the Church, so that you are both reassured and nourished by our beautiful traditions as you work your way through this grief.
