Bea and James Bailey

When Bea Bailey called to see if I might like to review her book, I could tell just by listening to her that it had to be very, very special indeed. Even over the phone I found myself in the presence of someone so filled with life and in possession of a heart that was wide open that I was inspired. To find such a person is a rare event – rarer still is to find that such a person has made caring for a loved one through serious illness and even death her mission. Her book, the outcome of her journey alongside her beloved husband James as his illness progressed and eventually claimed his life, is a pearl of priceless worth.

Bea has shared with humor, honesty, joy and sorrow all that she learned on this journey, and all that she believes you will need to know should such a passage become part of your own life.

This is the most practical, healing book on the subject I’ve ever seen. It is as though Bea were standing along side you, say, now you need to attend to this matter; now you need to check on that; are you taking care of yourself? Here’s what to do so that you continue to have the strength to help. And more, much more.

Farewell, My Friend is a book you read through tears and through laughter. It is a book that heals the heart as it helps you navigate through the myriad details that will confront you. It is a book about love, right through and then beyond the end of this life. Bea has made of her own loss a gift to all of us.
