"Thank you for sharing your gifts of music and poetry with us! We were honored to join you in this journey! We popped that CD in as soon as we hit the car and agreed that this is the kind of music that you listen to over good conversation and wine. I read your whole book in one sitting! Thank you for sharing your journey of pain, and most importantly your triumph! I was especially touched by a few of your poems, and though I wasn't quite ready to write my own responses, I have hope that my own healing will come in time. I sincerely thank you!"
