"Your presence and presentation to us at our family and friends celebration at Bridge House is an experience that will energize us for a long time to come. As a mother of a son who lives with a mental illness you truly reached out and touched all of the parents and family members of our community. We felt the wisdom of your experiences and the love in which you lived them. Your support and heartfelt concern for all of us has helped us to continue to be loving and caring for all whom we share life with that deal with mental illness everyday. Thank you for sharing your book with us."
