When her husband developed lung cancer, Kerry Aldridge, RN, had to learn to live one day at a time. His 14-year battle with the disease and the struggle to live with grace and gratitude are the basis for “Memories of the Heart: A Story of Love, Loss, and Learning to Live Again” (published by LifeRich Publishing), her debut book.

“My desire to help people understand that grief is a process and you can get through it with the help of others (inspired this book),” Aldridge says.

A story of love and loss and trying to maintain balance when a loved one is facing the end of their life, “Memories of the Heart” is the true story shared from Aldridge’s perspective as a hospice nurse. It reveals the struggles and rewards of nursing and how Aldridge had to learn how to be the wife of a cancer patient and not the nurse.

Through her work, Aldridge hopes her readers see “that they never have to be alone in their grief and loss, there are always people willing and able to help you.”
