“The message of this wonderful book is loud and clear. Don’t wait! Make sure you leave your children of all ages the legacy of clear, loving communication from you.” —Russell Friedman, Co-author of The Grief Recovery Handbook
In this Mom’s Choice Gold Award winning book, British grief expert, Gemini Adams, gently explains how moms, dads, and grandparents can realize the gift in goodbye, by taking six simple steps to share their wisdom and affection in a legacy of love, so that surviving loved ones will suffer less, if the “worst” should ever happen.
After losing her own Mom to cancer at a young age Gemini quickly learned that a typical inheritance doesn’t give surviving family, especially children, the ongoing loving support they really need. So, she started a survey asking: “If one of your parents died, what would you prefer: to inherit their money, or a letter saying how much they loved you?” Over 90% expressed a wish for the loving letter.
Gemini bravely shares this candid and heartrending account of the painful insights gained from her own loss, to teach us that our real wealth lies not in our Financial Assets, but our Emotional Assets: the values, memories, lessons, voice, image, and affections that makes us who we are.
Detailing practical ways to share these in a precious gift that will surely be treasured forever. Her positive message will soothe and inspire even those most fearful of the inevitable, to spring into action, and create a timeless memento for their loved ones. A $1 donation from each copy sold will be made to the Sacred Dying Foundation.
