   Loved it-as soon as I was done started all over and read it again.......
I've read all the books, but this was by far the best. having lost my oldest son this past June, I was so touched and moved that as soon as I finished, I turned to one page and started all over again. What I want most is just one more day with my boy. He passed away unexpectedly and I never got a chance to say goodbye or get that last hug and kiss, and I love you Mom that I would get each time we visited. The last two conversations were on the phone and via text. I feel like I can't let him go because I need that proper goodbye. The book left me feeling like maybe one day I'll get what I want most from life.

   Another wonderful story by Mitch Albom!
Mitch Albom is one of my all-time favorite authors. A quick read, but a great story of a mother eternal love and a son regretfully for not seeing and appreciating that love before it was too late. After a terrible car accident and while he is on his way to the hospital, his deceased mother appears to him. Through a series of photographs, McCartney embarks on a journey which includes a look back on his childhood where he is given the opportunity to see another perspective on occasions during his childhood that at the time seemed so black and white to him. What a lesson for all of us!

   One more read
I liked Mitch Albom's book and this was the impetus for picking up this book, which I enjoyed but didn't love. The idea of having another chance with someone we love who could inspire and reveal our lives to us was a fascinating one, and that was what held me for the duration of the book.

   Touched my soul
He passed away December 31, 2017. Thankfully his illness was brief, and he was back to work soon after. I have had the hardest time of my life, physically and mentally. It was a difficult book to find, but I purchased it knowing it would be difficult. It took me six months to get to where I needed to be. It brought me to my knees, Tunick said. Anyone dealing with the loss of a loved one and the anguish that comes with it must read this. No tears will be shed. Yes, they will flow. Accept them both. Mitch Ablom touches every last drop of blood. Not surprisingly, Taylor Swift's music video for "Shake It Up" was also viewed by many as a single. Part 2 is an alternate universe. You gave me your soul.

   Time
This book is beautiful, said Gillian. It made me laugh and cry. There are so many good reasons to be a fan of this site. I've also read a book by Albom that I really enjoyed. It took me three days to read this book, but I found it to be very useful. It's hard to put into words the anguish felt by the family. You need to keep people close, you need to be careful, you can't go wrong, said Dr. Mitch. Thanks for visiting!

   Making amends
i read this book on mother's day and few days after my mother passed away due to cancer. It reminded me of many things about my own relationship with my mother. Like any relationship, children have their own ups and downs with their parents, and i guess that it is human nature. Like any field of energy, emotion moves in waves, through which energy moves in and out of the body. nan One way of appreciating parents is just accepting them as they are because that is only how their ghosts will come to sit with us on the table when we will welcome them as they are.

   Disreputable vendor Diamond in the Rough
Note the seller, Diamond in the Rough, did not sell signed copies of the book. The book arrived yesterday and is a first edition, but it is not signed. He said: "I was disappointed and mad at first.

   For Everyone Who Lost A Loved One!
It would be so wonderful to spend one more day with those I have lost, Crosby said. It's knowing that I would indeed be with them again that keeps me moving forward. In that eternity, I will be with my loved ones who have passed away. Thanks to Mitch Albom for this wonderful story.

   Misleading back cover description
Mitch Albom's book "What If?" was also his third. The review by James McBride on the back cover is very misleading – at least it was for me. Indeed, Mr. Rule told the interviewer that the book "will make you smile." It did not make me smile at all, Mr. Booher told me. I found the story extremely painful and horribly depressing. Like Mitch albums, there is some redemption at the very end. But the pain of it, and the fact that I found nothing to like about the main character, makes me regret reading it at this time of my life and with all that I'm presently going through. Mitch Albom is such a compelling writer, I couldn't put it down. Just be aware of what you are getting into, Mr. Rule told the judge.
