If you have suffered a loved one taking their life, you will want to read this book. It tackles the painful questions of those left behind asking why? My mother succeeded on her seventh attempt to take her own life. I was twelve when she made her first unsuccessful attempt. I was twenty-seven when she succeeded. I wondered for thirty years why my brother and I were not a sufficient reason for my mother to want to live. I wish someone could have given me, Too Soon to Say Goodbye, to help me understand how better to deal with the hurt that followed. This book, along with your love, would be the best gift you could give a friend who’s loved one has chosen to believe the lie that suicide is the best answer to their desperation.
