    Thanks Mom and Anita for working so hard on this book. I did get my copy and have read it cover to cover. It was refreshing to read the stories of the people who contributed to the book along with your own personal insights into why and how we are to go on despite the arrows satan slings our way. I especially liked the scripture citings to back up the advice and encouragement that you provided to your grief share group and the readers of your book. I hope it will reach many more people that might be wondering for themselves, why am I still here? God bless you both!

    • Hi Terry, thank you so much for the great review. I’m so pleased that you loved the book. It was quite an experience for me, working on this book. Thank you for your precious stories. It’s so wonderful to see it on the shelf in a book store. WOW! Blessings.

  4. I received my copy of the book and just want to say, it is as beautiful in person as it is on screen. Easy to read, flows well and is packed full of testimonies and examples of how people cope with loss and why they think they are “still here”. Very moving collection of personal stories and insights into how people can and do go on after extreme trajedy or sadness.
