Powerful. Honest. Scary. And, unpretentiously correct.
On life’s journey we all encounter obstacles of pain, sorrow, loss and disappointment. Don has mapped the course well for us. Read it now, before the pain of loss clouds your perspective.
Bookstores and blogs are filled with words about death experiences and loss. The grief. The regret. The pain. It’s all there. What’s almost entirely missing, however, are the details. Honest, real-life details. The normal, everyday events that thread their way through these emotions, and live on in our hearts, minds, and souls. Don’s book, thankfully, is filled with the real life that surrounds a journey with the one you love. One who is heading for, or has gone, to the other side. The emotions are all there, to be sure. But the Real Story never gets lost. Through Don’s daily journey – his interactions with family, friends, and (most especially) himself and God – we learn. And we do that because Don learns.
