"The origins of this book lies in a widow’s tears. Tears that we wish were never shed. Tears that drowned us in sorrow and despair. Tears that left us gasping for air.
However, over the course of time, these widow’s tears became as the Balm of Gilead. Each tear drop leaving an imprint so visible and firmly etched that its transformative effect could not be denied. No longer did these tears bring sorrow or despair, but they brought strength and healing.
Healing that cascades out of this book like a flood and will become that balm that you’ve been looking for. As we watched our Mother go through the lows and very lows of losing someone that she loved. We’ve seen how she took what was her most weakest moment in her life and turned it into her greatest strength.
We all know that death is the final outcome of life. However, it was once said, “No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away.” Our Father was a jolly man, who was always willing to lend a helping hand no matter the situation. And it seems, even in death, he is carrying on this legacy."

"I woke up one morning (still struggling with all my emotions) and shouted,
"Grief, you don't have me, but I have you!"
At this time I knew I was in a battle for my mental, physical and spiritual life."
