If you have suffered a loved one taking their life, you will want to read
this book. It tackles the painful questions of those left behind asking
why? My mother succeeded on her seventh attempt to take her own life. I
was twelve when she made her first unsuccessful attempt. I was
twenty-seven when she succeeded. I wondered for thirty years why my
brother and I were not a sufficient reason for my mother to want to live.
I wish someone could have given me, Too Soon to Say Goodbye, to help me
understand how better to deal with the hurt that followed. This book,
along with your love, would be the best gift you could give a friend whoís
loved one has chosen to believe the lie that suicide is the best answer to
