T E S T I M O N I A L S "I have been meaning to write you and tell you that through your book, Charles and you have been an inspiration to me. I have been taking care of my wife several years now and as you especially know, sometimes you just get tired out and want to throw your hands up. Well, since reading your book and reading what you and Charles went through and how you two handled the adversity, it inspires me to go on."
-- Bob Dunn, caregiver of wife Virginia
"Your story is consoling and encouraging because it reminds me that my current trials are not unique and that others have experienced the same thing and survived to live a full and happy life again."
-- Ed Morrison, caregiver of wife Carol
"Janet, sharing the very intimate details of your journey made me feel like a close friend; I shared your frustrations, joys and ultimately your grief. I never met Charles, but I have now. I think anyone who reads this very personal story will, like I have, 'Find Meaning with Charles.'"
-- Jim Weakley, Chaplain, Arkansas Department of Health Hospice
"One of the things your story amply indicates is that there are as many ways to deal with such horrors as there are people experiencing them. You certainly tried and exhausted a huge number of options and in the end succeeded in doing what you wanted for Charles. And you survived with such compassion and energy still alive that you were able to share it with others. I know very many will be helped, guided and comforted by your words."
-- Karin Barron, Spokane, WA

READERS' COMMENTS -- Finding Meaning With Charles
This uplifting book will encourage caregivers to make the most of their situation, help them understand the difficulties they'll face, and teach them what they can do to help their loved one achieve personal aspirations. Finding Meaning with Charles -- Caregiving With Love Through a Degenerative Disease, helps caregivers sustain themselves and remain strong for their family members during times when they can easily find themselves worn out. A "must read" for caregivers of degenerative neurological diseases.
-- Richard Gordon Zyne, D.Min.
Executive Director, Society for Progressive Supranuclear Palsy
"I have walked in Janet's shoes as a caregiver. Caregiving is a true test of love and endurance. As a caregiver, you will be overwhelmed. This book will give you an incredible sense of peace and acceptance and the affirmations will bring you comfort. I wish the book were available when I struggled with my journey."
-- Patti Ryan, loving companion and caregiver for Leo Hamel during his neurological disease.
"This is a disarmingly honest remembrance of one couple's very special journey in dealing with an incredibly complicated disease process which ultimately resulted in death. Its strength is its ability to unlock the reader's vulnerabilities as the sharing of everyday details are interwoven with larger spiritual understandings regarding the nature of disease, loss, relationship. The author has used the complexity and richness of the experience to "make meaning" and to accomplish the difficult task in grief of holding the past and bringing it forward to the now."
-- Edith L. Murray, Hospice Administrator, Wayside Hospice, Wayland, MA
