From the Publisher

Quit Kissing My Ashes is an extraordinary gift to anyone who reads it. Unlike many of the best-selling books concerning after-death communication, this book contains hundreds of ways in which ONE individual is able to bridge the two worlds. Not only will you laugh at Kyle's antics, but you will also be exposed to the powerful impact that a psychic can contribute to the grief process. From the griever's perspective, you will experience the way in which this special gift of mediumship interplays with the relentless determination of our dead loved ones to communicate with us that they still exist and are okay.

I would like to recommend this book, "Quit Kissing My Ashes" by Judy Collier. It is a "Must Read" for anyone who has lost a child. I lost my child in August of 2001. Reading this book convinced me that I was not going "crazy" receiving my "angel" signs from my little Christie. This book only proves that our loved ones are with us all the time, and our signs, no matter what we feel or believe, let us know that our children stay with us, even when they have "crossed over" to the other side. Judy Collier relates to her readers all her signs she and her family have received from her son, Kyle. Judy lets everyone know that there is life after death, and if a person truly believes and lets themselves feel, that these signs will just keep being received by those who have the faith that God's love is truly present at this sorrowful time. I, for one, know this is abosolutely true, even though I admit that my little angel tries to tell her mom to "Get a grip" as maybe I take "signs" a little too far. But, you know, if it makes me feel better, what the heck!!! When a loved one dies, especially your child, a person has to dig really deep and learn so much more. Thank you Judy for writing this much needed book, to let us all know we are not crazy!!! Most importantly, thanks for letting us all realize our children are okay. I believe all parents only want their children's happiness and peacefulness with no worries or pain. Now, I realize my angel and many others have this. So, I tell others, when you see us cry, it is not for Chrisite, but for us who, of course, miss her so deeply. But is she okay?? You bet, and I can't wait till our entire family will one day be together again. Read this amazing book and feel your own signs at your time of grief. With faith in God, and listening to your innermost feelings, you too will realize what Judy herself tries to convince others what she has truly felt and come to believe on her amazing journey--our kids live on and they are okay.

I just finished reading this book, and I loved it sooo much! I didn't want it to end! It's the story of a Mother whose son was tragically killed in a car accident, and her subsequent contact with him on the Other Side, and how she coped with her heart wrenching loss. The author writes so naturally and beautifully telling the whole amazing story, you feel like she's talking to you, her best friend. You can truly feel her pain, frustration, love and happiness as the story unfolds. Judy Collier speaks from the depths of her heart as she takes you with her on an inspiring quest to stay in contact with her beloved son, Kyle, and learns many lessons along the way. She meets with several well-known psychic/mediums (which is so incredibly fascinating, because it is for real......no nonsense) who facillitate her contact with the Other Side, and ultimately you will see that contact with a loved one on the Other Side is possible if you just take the time to DO IT
Thank you Judy for a wonderful book........I almost want to read it all over again, and maybe I just will!

Judy Collier's remarkable autobiographical book, Quit Kissing My Ashes: A Mother's Journey Through Grief, is the powerful, profound, and intensely personal testimony of a teacher of special-needs children and bereaved mother whose beloved son Kyle died in 1996. Her intense mourning and her soul-deep grief are candidly presented, as is her eventual consolation obtained through working with a spiritual medium who was able to make her son's presence known to her on multiple occasions. We are compelling presented with Collier's personal experience and understanding that death is a only a beginning, not an end, and that the ones we love are always present with us in spirit. An uplifting, deeply moving book, Quite Kissing My Ashes is highly recommended for students of metaphysical studies in general, and anyone who has ever lost a loved one, in particular.

Undeniable affirmations that we do live on beyond our physical deaths. Everyone who has lost anyone should read this. It will teach you how to be aware of the communications of our loved ones and friends who have crossed over. Very funny, and very entertaining while teaching us lessons about life, death and life after death. Great job to author Judy Collier and her amazing son Kyle who I hope to meet one day too when I get there.

Unfortunately, the blind faith offered to us by orthodox religion doesn't offer much comfort to those who have lost a loved one. Orthodoxy has our loved ones floating around in a humdrum heaven or gnashing their teeth in some horrific hell. Real faith - conviction - comes from direct contact with those alive in the spirit world, as was the experience of Judy Collier, the author.

Collier's son Kyle was killed, at age 26, in an auto accident in 1996. Collier found the grief unbearable until she started receiving veridical messages from Kyle through mediums Mary Jo McCabe and John Edward. "It was my first confirmation that there might be more to life than the physical world," Collier writes of an early contact through McCabe.

The skeptics claim that the messages coming through clairvoyants are trivial and mundane, but as Collier was to realize it is this type of message that is most evidential. Some of the information communicated was unknown to Collier and therefore telepathy or mindreading was ruled out.

"Knowing your loved one lives on, as I have been given proof of over and over again, makes Kyle's not being here with us more tolerable," Collier further states. She also came to learn that excessive grieving can hold a soul back from learning and advancing in the hereafter; hence, the title of this of this interesting, informative, intriguing, and inspirational book.
