Patti and I shared so much over the twenty-four years we were together: her paraplegia, raising our son, lots of adventure, laughs, and love. When she died in a horrible accident, I had to face a completely new life and approach it day by day.
A Kiss Before You Go is an illustrated record of our years together and my first year alone. It covers sad events but ultimately it’s a book about loving and living, about beauty in its many shades. I hope reading it brings as much to you as writing it did to me.
Here’s a little video to give you a sense of what it’s all about:

I could never imagine someone close to me dying, but this book made feel like I’ve lost someone important to me. Great writing! Still reading….
I read this whole book in one day. I lost my husband of 30 years in March 2014 so my first 12 months of grieving are nearly over. I just wanted to thank Danny for sharing his everyday honest thoughts as he went through the process. It is a different experience for everyone but some aspects can be similar.
