The book Wish You Were Here shares a mother's love and heartache after the tragic suicide of her son. As Francesca works her way through the stages of grief, she eventually comes to the realization that somehow along the way she has changed. She discovers the miracle of life that only survivors with the deepest scars can relate to: it is through tragedy and hardship that we are forced to grow closer to God and wiser in our understanding of the meaning of life. We gain wisdom and insight that we are not capable of comprehending without these experiences. Somehow after suffering the most unimaginable pain, we can find not only peace and happiness, but a new outlook and appreciation for life altogether. --Jennifer Scalise, Author of A Mother's Journey of Love, Loss and Life Beyond
Tony's story as told by his mother, Francesca, is one to be treasured for all it does to inform, caution and inspire. --Dr. Gregory Jantz, mental health specialist, author, and founder of The Center: A Place of Hope
