In this heartbreaking memoir, one mother details her struggle to cope with the tragic deaths of two of her children. She learned that the future isn't promised and that she needed to cherish every moment of the present.
When Anthony's oldest son, Javis, died from an accidental gunshot, she didn't realize she could feel such a deep and unbearable pain. He left behind eight children, who needed their family to be strong.
Then, only a year later, Anthony's only daughter, April, died in a car accident. Anthony was grief-stricken, desperate, and furious that she would be forced to sit through two of her children's funerals. Her remaining son struggled with survivor's guilt and grief of his own. For a while, it seemed like there would be no happiness in the lives of the Anthony family.
It couldn't stay like this forever. In this inspirational memoir, Anthony shows how she and her husband picked up the pieces of their lives and gave their son and grandchildren the support they needed. It was through her unshakable faith in God that Anthony began the healing process. She hopes her work can comfort others and inspire them to do the same.
