This book was a gift for my aunt who is caring for my elderly grandmother. She found it so helpful that she even took it with her to a doctor's appointment because it explained an issue better than she knew how to do. It definitely was the right book at the right time. Read full review

I knew Larry and Kay from many years ago. I was very disheartened to hear of Larry's illness but we can all feel very blessed that Kay shared her experiences and knowledge in writing this book. Kay is a very talented and Godly woman. Any materials she authors is sure to be a quality product. Read full review
