Reviewer: Chrissie
"I just read the book Tom. It is absolutely WONDERFUL! I sent you a personal message on your personal page because that was the first page I discovered. By the way, this is from Chrissie...the funeral home secretary. This book is truly the most beautiful true love story that I have ever read. Your writing style is perfect and the parts taken from Irene's journal entries make it very personal and heartfelt. I shed tears and I laughed too! Thank you again for sharing "your" Irene with all of us! A MUST-READ for caregivers, survivors, or anyone who wants to experience the sweetness of TRUE LOVE."

I have just finished Chapter 1. I have laughed out-loud (Irene's stories are hilarious), have an inside view to genuine compassion, and know what fulfillment in one's life truly looks like. I know this book is going to take me on an emotional journey, as it's a journey Irene let few in on, because that was Irene. Time to read on . :)

Reviewer: Pat McGee
Love shows no boundaries in this beautiful story of a 4th stage cancer patient who would endure years of hospital stays, countless operations, over 175 chemo treatments, swallowed thousands of pills and always had the attitude “I want quantity of life not quality no matter what it takes”. Hats off to you, Irene and your adoring caregiver, Tom. You did just that for 9 long years. With all her struggles she still appreciated the value of living. Don & Pat McGee
