First I'm going to get mad at you for making me cry at work.  

Now that that's over with I must tell you how beautiful your story and illustrations are.  It really is beautiful and as someone whose father has died I really appriciated it.

How did you do the illustrations?

Amazing illustrations and a beautiful story.  I would like to hear how you did the illustrations also.

This looks so gorgeous. You have put together something very amazing and important.

Unfortunately I can't read it all now and rave about how amazing it is... my dad (who is expected to recover fortunately) is going to pick me up soon and I don't want to be a crying mess when he gets here.

It's beautiful so far. And honest. Smiley After spending the weekend with him I am sure I will need it.

Gorgeous.  I just lost my mom to cancer.  I love that the images look like layered paper cutouts... are they?

Thank you for sharing your story with me.  I lost my dad to cancer over 5 years ago.  I miss him.

this was really beautiful...add me to the list of people it made cry!  you should definitely look into getting that published--i think it would be a good resource for parents to have for their kids, because it is very confusing for children.  great work!

edit:  you DID get it printed...i just saw that on your website!
