“Barbara, I’ve just finished going through this course. You have given me a fresh look at ways to describe my daughter’s death in ways I never thought possible. I never considered I went through the 5 stages of grief until you opened my eyes, then I knew why I did certain things. Thank you. A valuable gift you share with the author world!”
