Here's What Some Grief Support Professionals Think 

"This is a wonderful gift Larry has given to the field relative to suicide. It emanates from his own life experience. Written and presented to appeal to our inner child, it provides a guide to the loved ones left behind. The duality of the message presented is both simplistic and yet complex. It avoids the WHY!? WHY!? Did This Happen!? It however presents a road map to the survivors addressing the, WHAT NOW!? His answer is, live your life, be forgiving, be productive and seek to be kind, sensitive and nurturing to others you meet along the way in your own journey."
