I read the entire book in just a few days-- and then my sister called. Our 87-year old father had been severely depressed since the loss of our mom. Despite my sister's devotion to Dad's well-being and healthcare, nothing could pull Dad back up the slippery slope he'd fallen down after his bride of 58 years had gone. Dad had been in the hospital for pneumonia in November and never quite recovered. Despite a two week hospital stay filled with blood tests, xrays, CT scans, Doppler scans-- the medical community could never quite put their finger on "what was wrong." Our father passed away, surrounded by family, the beginning of this month. I am so grateful I read this book before our dad's illness and passing. I see now that he had been letting go for awhile; that he didn't want to die-- but that he didn't want to live without Mom.Read more ›
