About The Project

To bring I WILL LOVE YOU EVERYWHERE ALWAYS to life, I teamed up with award-winning visual artist Cosmo Whyte (http://www.cosmowhyte.com).  We have worked hard to make this project a useful tool as well as a beautiful keepsake.  The completed book will be a 40-page full-color 8×8 picture book with text simple enough for young readers to comprehend.

I WILL LOVE YOU EVERYWHERE ALWAYS is intended not only as a comforting reminder that the ones we love never truly leave us, but also as a means to help children talk about their feelings and fears surrounding death. Likewise, it gives caregivers another resource to guide little people through the process of loss and healing.

    Just listened to your interview on WUNC this afternoon.. Absolutely beautiful – I plan to add this to our library. We have elderly parents and this will be a wonderful reminder for our daughter.
