  1. I am so sorry that we share this loss, my daughter Ruthie Lou lived and died in 2011. I am releasing a book at the end of January to help support families when they learn their child has passed away or that their life will be brief, and I would be honored for you to look at it. I would love to send an advanced copy in exchange for your honest review. Please email me if you are interested. or http://www.amielandsauthor,com
