About the Book
The Gift Giver – A True Story
Three days after my husband died… he told me why...
It was shocking… undeniably true… and the greatest gift he’d ever given me.
My story begins when our two boys jump up on the bed to wake their daddy - my husband - only to discover that he had unexpectedly died in his sleep.
Three days later, through the depth of my grief and denial, I was silently screaming, "Why!?! Why!?! Why!?!" And then I heard, "Do you really want to know?"
And then my husband told me why he had died.
Over the course of the next year, my relationship with my husband deepened in ways that were impossible when he was in his body. Through our conversations, I learned that he chose to die, and he told me what would have happened had he chosen to live! I learned how to accept what is, experienced true love, and, most importantly, from his boundless perspective, I learned about the true meaning of life.
What if when someone you love dies, there really is a reason?
What if you could know what it was?
