About the Book

The author explains how May 16th, 1999 changed her life forever. She experienced the loss of two high school seniors and that evening the call came through to tell her that her son, in Colorado, had also been killed. Her first born, with his bigger than life personality was gone. The words surreal and gut wrenching were her constant companions. Exactly six months later, her Mom had one heart pain, went into a coma and died. She had frequently told her, “Mary when the last leaf is gone from that tree, I will be leaving.” She gave her the gift of time to emotionally survive her son’s death.

Mary shares with you the recorded messages she has received for over a decade from her family, on the other side, to give you hope. Through her experiences, you will know that unconditional love and connection continue to exist when you believe in the possibility. Our loved ones do not disappear into the cosmos after their death. Their energy remains around us forever. You can reconnect with your loved ones, as she has, and achieve peace and assurance that, as her son has repeatedly told her, “Mom, all is as it should be.”
