"My life’s work is not about mailing books. I don’t just mail books. I mail a glimmer of hope. A gesture that says “You matter and I care”, “here is some information that may help”. Checking in with grieving families, when typically, close family and friends have moved on, is the most rewarding and valuable experience.  I am truly blessed beyond measure!"
