did not like it

I lost interest after he noted how easy it was (because he is a handsome successful cardiologist) to find a new wife after losing his first wife of 30 years to cancer.

Sarah Graboys Dear Candace,

I am sorry that was your take a way message from the book. My father has been a dedicated healer for his entire life. He is a physician who would give out his home phone number to his patients and they felt comfortable calling at all hours. He and my mother had a wonderful marriage for 30 years before her death. My fathers grief at the loss of my mother was beyond profound and verging on crippling and we were all lucky that he found someone else to share the rest of his life with. It was not 'easy' in the least. Sarah Graboys Valeo
