I had learned that living through grief is a lonely journey but this book tells me that I do not have to do it alone. Through Mrs. Brant's words, I felt her comforting words were there to tell me that I am not alone because she's been there. The author not only shared her life's experiences and lost but yet also shared practical reminders as how to take care of ourselves and how to channel the unbearable sadness by going through it.
This book is not only written for bereaved family members. It is a truly remarkable book, if you want to know how to embrace the love of life, grace, compassion, wisdom and when every day matters!!!!
Thank you, Mrs. Brant for your book and for giving me the courage to move on and treasure what I still have in my life.
Mary Jane also has a site [...] where she talks about her life and daughter. On this site she has a link where she posts stories from other parents who have lost a child. Both mothers and fathers. I also found this site to be helpful. If you find Tylers story that is my son.
Following the advice of close friends to "write herself back to sanity, serenity and wholeness," the author carefully chronicles her journey through the first year of grief following her daughter's death. In the process of writing letters to Katie, she constructs an honest, intimate and loving memoir brimming with the unconditional love between mother and child, as she describes her successful efforts to champion her daughter to live her life to the fullest, reach her lofty goals and fulfill her destiny, despite the very short time this remarkable young woman was given on this earth. (While enduring treatments of her own, Katie Brant worked tirelessly to establish Katie's Kids for the Cure, aimed at finding a cure to rid children of brain tumors.)
The author peppers her writing with occasional "Looking Back Reflections" that offer additional insights, wisdom and understanding about life, love and loss, based not only on Hurley Brant's personal experience but on her education and training as a certified group psychotherapist and Human Relations Counselor as well.Read more ›
