  Courageous , 08/14/2007
Reviewer: Angie York
Once I started to read your book I couldn't put it down until I finished it, and I must say as I was reading, I was picturing everything you wrote - my mind was running away with me. You are one courageous woman. I compliment you on everything you do and are doing. I'm sure your beloved son Mark Anthony understands and I know he is proud of you after all you are "Still His Mother".

Dear Diana, You brought tears to my eyes when I opened your book. There are no words to express how proud I am of you for following through on what must have been the most painful and insightful journey. You should take great pride in what you have accomplished. The book is so well written-I read it from cover to cover today. Sometimes, there are no words that need to be said-It's a phenominal accomplishment and will touch the lives of many.

  Poignant Memoir , 06/02/2007
Reviewer: Rina & Ray Adams
Dear Diana, We are very proud of you. We were not able to put this heartfelt memoir down. We each read it in one sitting. It was an extremely well written documentation of a terrible tragedy that you are now using to help others. Jackie Robinson had an old saying, “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” We believe this book will definitely impact others and help them in their grieving process. Love, Rina and Ray

  Angel on Earth , 06/25/2007
Reviewer: Debbie Kennedy
I want to thank Diana for sharing her story with the world. It must have been so very difficult. I thank her for sharing her true feelings, frustrations and her strength. As a bereaved parent, this book brought me comfort. My friends and family tried their best-but reading a book written by someone who has lost a child-who can relate-made a world of difference. I now know that what I was feeling was real and normal-that I wasn't going crazy. Her strength and honesty amaze me. Thank you for sharing your story and helping so many newly bereaved parents. You are an Angel on earth.

  Invaluable Insight and Hopefulness , 06/26/2007
Reviewer: Nancy Roscigno
I was very moved by this incredible, true account of tragedy and ultimately of hope. The author skillfully and with raw honesty takes you through her journey of grief and agony that will resonate with anyone who has lost a child. What is so remarkable with this book is the way you walk the journey with this mother from the moment she gets the news that her son is dead, through the first year, and the years beyond. Ultimately, she reveals a true strength of character in honoring the memory of her son and in reaching out to others who know this pain. I highly recommend this book for the invaluable insight and hopefulness it offers to those who are grieving and to those who comfort them.
