Mary Rockefeller Morgan, daughter of former New York State Governor Nelson Rockefeller, spent years trying to repress her grief after her twin brother, Michael, disappeared off the coast of Southern New Guinea in 1961. In her book, When Grief Calls Forth the Healing: A Memoir of Losing a Twin, Mary chronicles the struggle to claim her personal identity and overcome grief in the many years following Michael’s disappearance. Now working as a psychotherapist, Mary focuses specifically on twin loss and bereavement counseling. Rafael Pi Roman speaks with Mary about the disappearance of Michael Rockefeller, the importance of the grieving process and the perpetual strength of the twin bond.
