This book was a wonderful way for me to quietly think about my wonderful sister. I have read it many times since her death 4 years ago.

When I lost my father in 2001 a friend gave me this book. I was slightly up out, the last thing I wanted was a book. I forgot all about the book. Months later I came across this book and have blessed my friend for sharing it with me. As a Pastor I have started to give this book as an ongoing blessing to the families of loved ones I have laid to rest. This book lets us know that it is okay to always miss your loved one and even if it is 5, 10, 20 years later it is good and healthy to still cry.

This is a wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated book that says all the things people want to say but can't always find the words when the time is upon them. It's a very comforting book to turn to when remembering a loved one - for children and adults alike.

This is the best book on the market to give to someone who has lost a loved one. When I read it, it brought tears to my eyes. I have given several as gifts and their comments were, 'this was the best gift, better than a sympathy card, or flowers, something I will be able to cherish forever'.
