  4. What is your favorite book to read?
    I have two books i Absolutely love. Both are emotional journeys. “Half a life” by Darrin Strauss. Its a real life account of the events that unfolded during a car accident that caused a young girl to die. After the accident he spends half his life blaminng himself for what happened to the poor young girl. The second favorite book is The Lovely Bones. Its a book about a young girls muder and thereafter the entire story is told by her in heaven (or her kids version of heaven) watching all her family members as their own lives unfold and fall apart. My sister in law was murdered in January of 2004 and i love this book because it comforts me .
