It's impossible to read this book without crying, especially at the beginning. When his daughter Amy died at 38 of a heart abnormality she didn't knew she had, Rosenblatt and his wife move in with their 3 grandchildren and son-in-law.

"The trouble with a close family is that it suffers closely, too."

Reading about parents whose children have died is not something I ordinarily want to do. But this was, ultimately, a sweet story about the honor and commitment of loving families.
