“I Will Love You Everywhere Always” is a tribute to my friend, Maleikka Hardy Williams, whose fierce battle with breast cancer ended in 2008, and a gift to her daughters, Sydni and Makala. Of all of her numerous personal and professional accomplishments, the one she cherished the most was being a phenomenal mom.

“I Will Love You Everywhere Always” is about the everyday places we can look to feel the enduring presence of the ones we love.  As the mother in my stories says,

“. . .Mommies never leave

Sometimes, when their bodies get too tired

Or too sick

Or too weak or

Too worn out

They change out of them

But they never go away. .  .”

Part of the purpose of this book is to create a space for little ones to ask questions and hear stories about their loved ones who have passed on.

Join us in creating a collaborative on-line video journal honoring the legacies of the parents, siblings, and friends we’ve lost.

    From the voice of a child who’s had to endure the trauma of losing a parent at an early age. The journey is not easy, but made even less difficult when space is created for dialogue and healing. Thank you Renee for this project. I will continue to spread the word in these final days of the fundraising campaign, as I like many, believe in this necessary and poignant project!

    From a 53 year old woman who lost my mother at 8 yrs old and father at 12 years and now been blessed with a 13 year old “daughter” who asked me to be her “mother” without even knowing my story. Thank you for writing this. This is another way she can get her questions answered and find healing while she grows up and learn to find herself, trust and love again. Thank the TJMS for this moving story and another opportunity through this book for children and adults everywhere to heal.

    Thank you so much for sharing this post and for all of the wonderful help you have given me with this project. You have written about a sublimely painful memory in such an honest and beautiful way. You honor the voice of the 4-year-old that you carry with you. What I love most is that you are able to pick your young self up with your words, hold him to your chest, comfort him, teach him, and make a safe, good place for him/you in the world. This has to have a biggest audience. I hope you are still planning to publish it traditionally. Many of us carry pain that is waiting to be acknowledged, comforted, and healed.

    Thanks again for sharing.
    With love,
