His death almost led to her own. After a five-year spiral of depression and pain, followed by attempted suicide, a miraculous gift from Louis brought hope, strength and renewal.
Patricia's recovery led to writing Healing Life's Broken Dreams, which is the instrument others can now use to face their loss and work beyond it. Her truthfulness and insights are essential for those who need the inspiration and guidance to channel grief toward healing and acceptance.
Hers is a true story about life, love, loss and the long journey back in an intimate, powerful, candid and extraordinary narrative. The gift Patricia received and now passes on to others is one of time and the ability to step back into life to put the shattered pieces of a soul together again.
Patricia Forbes lives in Hopedale, Massachusetts, with her boyfriend, Tony, and their dog, Lucky-the gift given to her from her son after his death. Patricia has been accepted into the master's program of the American Academy of Grief Counseling to become a certified grief counselor. She enjoys horse-back riding, working out, reading and spending summers at the ocean.
