In February 2005, I lost the most precious thing in my life, my daughter Stacy. She was my only child and my best friend. I was devastated. I felt so helpless and alone. In time, I began to write poems to her. Then I decided to have them published. I felt that it was a way to keep her memory alive and to bring me comfort through the bad days ahead. I also wanted to bring hope to other bereaved parents. There is no other pain like the pain of losing your child. May this book bring them support and hope on their journey through their terrible tragedy. They do not have to walk alone.
