Books (to help the soul heal)

These are books which we have found help us laugh and cry and to continue to remember and reflect on all the love and joy. This list is not an all inclusive list.

The Fall of Freddie The Leaf is our all-time favorite.  The book puts "life" into perspective using a very simple analogy.

We know life is a gift and everyday is a miracle, so treasure today as tomorrow is not promised.

The books are not listed in order of preference.
