My Love Will Follow You There

Calming imagery for children facing death

My Love Will Follow You There tenderly guides a child facing death to a place full of love and free of pain. 

This intimate story brings comfort to the child and their family during the transition from here to the place we go next. Using poetic language, My Love Will Follow You There tenderly addresses death and uses calming imagery to guide a child through the unknown. A way for parents to say goodbye, My Love Will Follow You There, gently encourages children to follow the light to a place full of love and free of pain. Written and illustrated by bereaved parents Carla and Mark Garrett, My Love Will Follow You There is a moving story accurately capturing the sentiments many parents struggle to express during those painful last hours with their child.

We have a limited supply of books available to donate to families in immediate need. Thanks to many generous donors, we have already distributed more than 200 free copies of My Love Will Follow You There to families and organizations across North America dedicated to caring for children at end of life.
