    Your book sounds wonderful and interesting to read.
    Grief! All human we all had grief, but yes for sure is up to us to learn and turn to the meaning of our life.
    If we always carry on the sadness of life, we will never find peace and happiness for our meaning.
    I believe it is hard to deal with grief, but if someone could do, we all can do it, just up to time and patience.
    Take positive to guide us to peace and happiness of life.
    So much negative around the world that effect all of us emotionally.
    But the point is do we allowed that to stop our life towards positive life?
    And Trevor Mom she did it, despite all the problem and grief through her life.
    She still a wonderful and happy mom and the hero of her wonderful childrens.
    This is just one example, but real life.
    I believe have a lot of people did it.
    Hope, positive and love, we all will find a piece of happiness for our life meaning.
    Love and appreciate you both for wonderful works.
    🙏🙏🙏💚💚💚🤗

    I don’t get it. Trevor said “they” but only one woman showed up.
