Because of my personal and professional experience, I know the need for a tool of expression in the face of monumental loss. That is what this book is. It's like a flashlight to guide a child or teen-ager through the maze of grief. It is not meant to answer questions, nor to ponder on meanings. This book is meant to be written in, pasted onto, drawn on, doodled in. It is meant to produce a celebration and articulation of a relationship, a relationship the "author" has lost.
