A wonderful tribute of love, not only in life but in the gift of seeing love through the dying journey. May each one that reads this book
look at their own life and gain insight in the way they define love. This is one book that I read in small segments to cherish the described love
the beauty defiled and the true beauty that was revealed in each word. Thank you, Mark for sharing your inner most feelings
and to Val, each person that was blest to have known you, they are forever changed. Love you!

Excellent read. Mark Scholten allows his readers to see straight into his heart. He puts into words what many have experienced. I was challenged to really think about many theological issues while reading this. Thank you Mark for sharing such a tragic loss with your readers and using it to minister to us. God is truly good and you have honored Him.
