About the Book

This book takes life lessons and observations from the world of the terminally ill and offers inspirational and instructional stories. In this journey we call life, there are always teachers and mentors who have gone before us and students who follow after us. Picturing this concept, I envision three people on a wooden bridge crossing a stream. The position of these three people shows the one in front, which would be the mentor, one in the middle, a student and also a mentor to the one following. In the broader picture each person has another in front and another behind capturing the idea we are always a mentor / teacher and always the student. My heart's desire with these stories is to both illustrate this principle and honor those who mentored me.
