Just For You: Remembering Ronnie

A book about losing a sibling and SUDC (Sudden Unexplained Death in Children).

This book is in dedication of Ronnie Joy Hollander

Ronnie Joy Hollander was an exceptionally bright and beautiful little girl who died suddenly and without explanation on January 13, 2020 at 2 years and 3 months of age. Ronnie brought joy and laughter wherever she went. She was a silly little girl, full of energy, sweet life and personality. She loved to read, sing, dance, climb, swim and play pretend and she had an absolutely incredible bond with animals. She was then the baby of the family and loved no one more than her parents, Dahlia and Michael, and older brother and sister, Ari and Lielle. In June 2021, the Hollander family welcomed Levana, the baby sister Ronnie sure would loved to have met.

Ronnie’s untimely death falls under the category of Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC), a classification used when a child (aged 1-18)’s cause of death remains unknown even after a thorough investigation, including an autopsy.

This book was written specifically for the siblings of children who have died, irrespective of the cause, but with an extra focus on surviving siblings affected by an SUDC loss. Through this short story book and glimpse into our own family’s experience, the hope is that bereaved children can find comfort in feeling less alone in their grief experiences and find some useful strategies to cope with their loss while meaningfully remembering their loved one as they continue on in their journey of life after loss.
