Gary L. Hollen's Tributes to Sadness and Happiness is a highly accessible and intimate work—a gift to anyone struggling to overcome the grieving process and recapture a happiness lost. Inspired firsthand by the loss of Gary's wife and his family struggles thereafter, Tributes is a genuine and transparent account of one man's journey toward dissolving deep sadness and harvesting a new level of happiness. By "clearing his desk" of any stones unturned and prospective regrets, Hollen also shows how to move forth undeterred and with a new sense of both excitement and liberation.
