As the mother of this Extraordinary Life, that the writer of this book shares, I have been well told that my reviews are biased and do not count. But, I can assure you that, if you read this book with an open heart, the writer will not only capture it by his incredible gift of words and true stories but you will begin to realize the meaning of life, death and love. Your heart will be filled with a hope in knowing that each life has purpose and that a life well lived could never be forgotten.

As I read this completed project that was 9 years in the making, I would have to remind myself that, this is my life! This is the life of my daughter, my family, my friends. I was so impacted and drawn in to the real life stories that are shared including the writer himself as he becomes transparent to openly share what he as the writer, pastor and friend had to go through as he not only witnessed but lived the horrific pain that comes from the death of those we love.

What I love the most about this book, is that though tragic pain is shared, hope for a future is the encouragement received, as well as the importance of remembering, or realizing that every life has purpose. Every life will not only leave behind a legacy, but our legacy will be lived out in those we leave behind. Even as the mother, friend and life shared throughout this book, I walked away with a heart felt love and a desire to live my life in such a Way that I would want others to live out as they remember me.

This book is touching, encouraging, and beautifully written. A must read for those who are hurting as well as for those who just
need to be inspired by the purpose of life and death.

Something had been pushing me to read this book. As i sat in church and slowly learned about danielle there was something that drew me to it. Something that i cant explain. As i read the book it really opened my heart. I know life wont always be easy but i know i have god on my side and that with him ill get through it. I still cant explain that connection i feel with danielle but i know its god and theres a reason for it. This book is a must read. It gives you hope and a sense of peace. I cried a lot and laughed a lil to. Thank you pastor mike for sharing danielles legacy.
