"When my son died I begged my family and friends to help me find hope for survival; I needed to  know that others survived a tragic loss.  I read many books, but not many like Mourning Has Broken. I am thankful for having the opportunity to read [it] as it has filled me  with feelings of continued hope and inspiration."

"I really LOVE your book and have thoroughly enjoyed reading the stories and poems, etc.  In fact,  your book has inspired me to do more writing of my own about loss, grief and healing, etc.  I think it  is such a fabulous idea and truly believe so much healing and growth can happen when one writes  down their feelings and thoughts about what they are going through - especially in very difficult  times such as after the loss of a loved one."
