Death is unexpected. Death is horrific. Death is sudden. Death is part of life. It is the part of life as we don’t ever want to happen. It is the end of life as we know it and the beginning of healing for the survivors. We are all confronted with death at some time in our lives. Some suffer more than others, while others suffer less. Our guest this week will help us comprehend our feelings and reactions to death. He gives us hope that we can, one day, find our way through the pain and discover our happiness again.
Rudy Wietfeldt has personally faced and overcome incredible tragedies: at 18 he was pallbearer for his father, who died suddenly in his 40s; at 25, Rudy had also served as pallbearer for his mother. By the age of 33, Rudy had buried three sons and a daughter. And Rudy has also suffered with what Wikipedia has called “the most painful condition known to medical science,” the Cluster Headache. Through all the pain and suffering, the book “The Core of Happiness” was penned by Rudy in the hope that his surviving children and others would ultimately derive benefit from his philosophy of hope that has guided his life. “The Core of Happiness” is the first in a series of books with “a ‘novel’ approach to self help.” Rudy is currently co-authoring a chronic pain management book with Dr. Barry Mitchell; look for this to be released in 2012.
