Upon losing my daughter a few months ago in an auto accident, this was comforting. To realize that death only temporarily parts us & from the child Sunny's view in this book, we gain knowledge as to how we are handled after we pass thru the Veil. Recommended reading for parents who mourn, as they will be comforted.
