“Now walk into Heaven, home you must go, to be the angel I always knew that you were.”
“Their little girl continued to ask them to, "please read the special book" to her. Parents shared they had read it at least a dozen times. Your book was a true blessing for this family and I am imagining it will be a gift for many others."
“We recently shared a copy of your book with a mom who was having trouble finding a way to talk with her teenaged son who was facing imminent end of life. She read the book aloud to him and the beauty of the words gave her the strength to say all the things that she couldn’t on her own. This mom was incredibly grateful for this amazing resource as she face the most difficult situation.”
