This is a great tool to help you through the pain of losing someone. My husband and I just lost our 20 year old cat whom we had in our lives from an eight month old kitten. A long time for bonding, days, months and years of pure joy. His death has hit us hard and this book of shared memories from an assortment of Canadian authors, persons of note across our Country is a fine and comforting read. I have recommended it to friends and will urge anyone in a state of heart break to get it and read it not all at once but a story once or twice a week. You will identify with the feelings the stories evoke.

Having recently suffered a bereavement, this book was sent to me, giving stories of other people who had had similar experiences. I then sent a copy to my nephew, who was experiencing great difficulty dealing with his mother's death. I found it very moving and cathartic.
