Desde España te envío el mejor abrazo que tengo para ti.


Your book for your son is so beautiful and heart-wrenching. When someone you love dies that is the hardest thing you will ever go through. Talking about your son and keeping his memories will help you so much. Sometimes you can only just breathe because the grief is so strong. I know from my beloved husbands death that is what helps me.
Take care. Cheryl


Karla, this is such a beautiful remembrance of your much loved son Ryan. I hope you can look at it often and treasure and enjoy those wonderful memories until you meet again.
Sending you a big squeezy hug sweetie xx


Oh, Karla. I know this had to be your heart made visible because you are an artist. Thank you for sharing these pages of your life and your beautiful son with us. If you decide to create another volume, your heart will be in it, too.

What a wonderful project. I can't imagine a better tribute from a Mother for a son. Hope you get a lot of comfort looking at it.

Carol O'Connell

Oh Karla your tribute book for Ryan is filled with love. You filled it with all your heart and memories...it is beautiful!
Sending (((hugs))) from Canada.


What a truly treasured book, Karla. I can feel his heart and soul on every single page you created. Your own personal handwriting and his drawings and handwritten name make it extra special. Grief takes so much time and processing, I am glad working on this was helpful for you...and I agree...I don't think we ever recover from losing children. Continue to be kind to yourself. If you have more things you want to include...start a second album.... I am sure he has been right there with you as you go on your walks...and as you have worked on his beautiful books.
