“It is my intent that readers will understand that the suffering incurred in grief and bereavement is a gift … a wonderful means of growth, instead of just a time to be painfully endured,” states the author. “Great personal losses can leave one bitter. Rather than become bitter I want my readers to become better persons as a result of their experiences.”
