Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Two weeks before Father's Day 2012, I awoke with the inspiration to write my first eBook, focusing on the topic of fatherhood.  

My initial thought was to include the various reflections, poems, and words of wisdom about and from my own Dad. Then I decided to expand it to include thoughts from other family members and friends for whom my Dad was a father, a grandfather, a father figure, and/or an inspiration in their lives in some way.

In another section, I decided to include thoughts from other people about their own fathers, grandfathers, father figures, and -- yes -- reflections on our Heavenly Father.

Finally, since I know not everyone has had the benefit of having a wonderful Dad like I did, I decided to include a section of thoughts for current and future fathers about things to do and NOT do in order to be good fathers.

The experience of writing this eBook has been an amazing journey, reflecting on my childhood and 50+ years of life -- all influenced by the amazing man I was proud to call Dad: Ben Willis.

Even though he left this world too soon, as a victim of lymphoma in 2002, his influence and his legacy live on in all of us who had the privilege of knowing him and loving him, in all his various roles as a husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother, and friend.

Sadly, my Mom also passed away, in July 2011. While we miss her, we are comforted in knowing that she has joined 'her Ben' and her heavenly Father, both of whom we suspect awaited her with open arms and Dad's trademark hugs!

Their final resting places are side by side, at the Veterans Cemetery in New Hampshire -- together again, in heaven and on earth!

I hope that this book will be a blessing and an inspiration to all those who read it -- and that all men who are or someday will be fathers might learn from the examples shared about my Dad and other beloved fathers.          ~~K'Lee Banks, June, 2012

From the Inside Flap

"The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him." -- Proverbs 20:7

Fatherly Reflections is about such a man, Ben Willis, because nearly 10 years after his passing, his children, grandchildren, and friends reflect on the blessings of having known him and cherish his ongoing influence on their lives.

Fatherly Reflections includes the author's tributes to her Dad, the tributes of others who knew him, and tributes from others about their own fathers.

Fatherly Reflections also includes thought-provoking words of wisdom for current and future Dads, along with photo galleries of memories and original sketches by the author's talented twin nieces.

Current Dads, those who may be fathers some day, and all those who love/d their Dads will benefit from this warm collection of poems, short stories, and tributes to Dads.
