    A phenomenal gift to his three young boys that Mark will soon leave behind due to terminal cancer. Rather than offer directives, Mark offer's perpective to his children when having to navigated both the expected and unexpected hurdles of life. Can you imagine trying to capture everything within two covers and not knowing what time you have left? Mark, and his family, face that fear everyday for the past two years, and have done so in such a fearless and grounded manner that we all can learn soemthing from them. An absolute must read!!!

    I have never laughed, cried, been more grossed out and inspired

    I have never laughed, cried, been more grossed out and inspired by one book or person's story in my life. As a father and active military member I am blown away by Lt Colonel Mark Weber's willingness and honesty in this book. As a person who has not been personally affected by cancer I cannont beging to imagine the day to day life, and questions that Mark and his family face.
    I would recomend this book to anyone. A great read, and a truly inspirational story.

    And like I said, the "Stuff" is now posted.

    It is a wonderful read! You get to understand Mark through his stories of the past and the challenges of illness. There are many lessons to be shared but I think an important one is when people say they "can't" do something, it often means they choose not to do it. Mark challenges us to be the best person we can be. It was written for his sons but can help us all.

    This is a book all should read. It inspires the soul. Though Mark writes it to his beautiful sons, it is necessary for us all to read it. Mark may have an incurable cancer. While Mark may be dying, he is living every second and making use of his life every second of every day. This grandmother of 5 beautiful children will always remember Mark and I feel truly blessed to have read his book. By all means read it and encourage others to do so.

    I so enjoyed this book, it was nourishing to my soul. I loved the honesty and detail of all my Marks experiences from youth to adulthood. His gift of writing describing happenings in such a picturesque way that grabs the reader into the book as if you are actually right along side him. Marks humor in all his adversity is so appreciated as tools for lifes lessons . The most beautiful part of the book is what his sons are doing to mentor students who need lots of TLC, they did this on their own from lessons learned from both parents. Tell My Sons is rated top ten with me and the book will not lie vacant on my shelf but will be passed onto others to share always the gift of life well lived !!!!!
