“This book will touch many hearts and souls. Often, we, as a society do not speak of our losses in life for many reasons. But these parents of loss have chosen to share their losses an give us a new perspective and an honest ‘view’ into a heart wrenching experience that often many never speak of for many reasons.  This is the perfect gift to share this book with those in our life circle who know this experience.   I thank you, all of you who have shared in this book your heart and soul experience.  Peace, Love, and Courage be yours as you unselfishly continue to share through these pages.”

I“I cannot imagine how the loss of one’s child must feel, much less how I would cope and move on. And yet, it appears that when one loses a child it elicits the greatest feeling and expression of love imaginable, even in the midst of such. How can two such profound feelings exist simultaneously? These stories are not intended to create sadness or sorrow, but to uplift and inspire. They bring us together as parents and humanity through the joy and love of these precious Souls whose physical lives were cut short. They serve as the vehicle through which we can experience and express our humanness and compassion. Your heart will be tugged in many directions, and yet, you will experience an immense sense of gratitude for the willingness of these courageous parents to share their child’s story.”
