In the context of one's lifetime, the journey was a momentary fragment, but the experience was all-consuming. Then suddenly, I was catapulted from a life of great joy into the depths of despair. The pain, the loss, and the grief were incomprehensible. Acceptance and transformation emerged slowly. Beautiful memories and my faith in God and the human spirit gave me the courage to pull myself together, explore new opportunities, and begin again. These pages recall the journey, with all the joys, the sorrows, and the dreams coming full circle. Standing in the Sun recounts how I survived loss, transcended grief, and learned to embrace life once again. It is written with the hope of helping families cope through critical illness and loss of a loved one, and for those who are struggling to get their life back on track. I wish readers the faith, the love, and the audacity to envelope the mystery of life. And, may you enjoy the reading as much as I have savored the writing of these words.
