Overview

'The Send-Off' is Ryan K. Smith's follow-up to his debut novel, 'Needles For Free: a manic episode.'

He wrote this in honor of his late mother, Robin Yvonne Butler Smith and nephew (her grandson), Tyler. The two never got to meet. Robin passed away in 2009 after a battle with pancreatic cancer, a year before Tyler was born (coinicidentally, the day before what would have been her 53rd birthday). Smith created a spiritual scenario where grandmother and grandson met. The story is deeply rooted in the Christian faith Robin raised him with.

Though dedicated to Robin and Tyler primarily, 'The Send-Off' is for anyone who has lost a loved one to cancer. It is Smith's hope that it will help any reader who has experienced cope with that devastation.
