This seems like a book that I would like to read. Thank you. I lost my son, Kevin, to suicide and 9 other family members in the last four generations. I work with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention by putting on the Acadiana "Our of the Darkness" Community Walk. With some of the money raised, I have sent all public and private middle and high schools in Acadiana Region a "More Than Sad" DVD that will help the educators recognize the signs of depression. I have also sent three people to facilitor training so that they can help those left behind. I have turned the death of my son into something positive. This is what God wanted me to do with this tragedy. God Bless.
As an atheist whom has lost numerous loved ones in various ways from disease, suicide, murder, overdoses, and accidents, I can tell you that I lost my faith after experiencing my first shockingly painful loss at age 10. I stopped believing one day after my cousin was sick and I prayed and prayed for her to get better. She did not. As a child I took this to mean that there could not be a God. I'm 28 now and have argued for 18 years that when we die, we simply decay and nothing more. I live in Texas and just happened to be visiting my sister in Morrisville when you came to her apartment door and told your story. My brother-in-law bought your book and I immediately read it from cover to cover. Never before have I heard or read something that stirred something inside of me the way your book did. You gave me hope that there may be something more. I just wanted to say, "Thank you."
I look forward to reading your book. I too have been on a journey and am eager to expand my heart realm to embrace what you've learned.
I, also, had to read this straight through. Thank you so much for sharing your journey with us. I am passing this on to my children and others.
Nicely redesigned Connie!
Many thanks for great work you are doing in this neglected,abandoned and very sad area of human life.
I lost my 34 year old son to suicide in 2009. Had no idea something like this could happen to him or us. I am totally crushed and broken by what happened. He left behind 2 small children. I had attended a few grief groups, went to a private therapist, read lots of books, but I must say this book, Reconciled by the Light, really made an impression. I could identify with this book. I guess it made me feel a bit better, but I go back and forth, one day I feel better, the next day, not. I pray the afterlife really is like the book indicates. I hope my son is at peace. I try to pray and send him good thoughts, but I am so sad that it is really hard to do. I love him so much, so I hope he is getting that. His kids still say "I love and miss daddy", so these thoughts are being sent to him. I have seen mediums also, and some of them told me things that are impossible for them to know. My son had to be there to give me these messages. I would definitely recommend this book to people with similar loss. Thank you so much.
Thank you for writing a book on the susicide of your son. I lost a brother a year ago and he was like a son to me . He was 14 years younger than I. I will be getting your book . I have been so thankful to find sites such as yours to help me thru the devastating ordeal. I lost my husband to cancer in June and I have handled that better than Mike suicide. I was able to tell my husband I loved him, tell his good by and thanked him for the wonderful 53 years together, I didn't get that chance with my brother Mike. To be honest I thought death was death and we greived the same . Well let me tell you how wrong I was. They are no way the same and anyone who tells me they know how they feel and has never went thru loosing someone by suicide I tell them what the difference is. If someone has lost a loved one to cancer and etc then they know how I feel about loosing my husband. I know I will see my loved ones again someday and I feel their presence here with me now.
I;m lookingforward to readung you book. Thank you and God bless you .
An amazing book. I was moved to tears. I lost my son to a brain tumor when he was 11 and I was heartened to read your book. Wiiliam Tidwell is also 2nd gen

I look forward to being a member of Reconciled by the Light. Thank you, Ron, for creating this site. God bless you and all those involved.
Your story telling how you and your son reconciled your relationship is very beautiful, and I feel certain that it will help lots of people. I hope that more and more people hear about the book (I've already told a few of my own friends).
I have a small "column" that I write / edit. Would it be ok to tell people about your book while quoting a few lines?
If so, could you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org? Thanks, and a great Thanksgiving to you and Connie, and all your children.
All the best,
Long time no see!
I read your book all in one time frme.
First time I learned about Joshua.
Such a great documentation.

Stephen and I live near the Heaven and Earth Training Center (Korea)
Say hello to Connie for me. Maybe she will remember me, maybe not but anyway everyone knows you guys!
Love your Sister in True Parents,
Ron, participating in your first teleconference calls on Tuesday nights has been both inspirational and educational, but to hear you share your experience, love and faith is absolutely incredible. I am most amazed that Spirit is so powerful, distance and phone lines are not even considered. The vibration and energy shared is exactly like experiencing in person conversation and prayer. Taking our faith to the conference lines is inspirational and I love you for it. I know it is the beginning of a ministry and I encourage everyone following this Spiritualist path to join for a session. It is so worthwhile.

Hello Ron,could you send me a email.i have a question regarding medium.thanksGod bless youHorst
Ron, I never imagined that just a few months after meeting you and Connie I would be a parent dealing with my child's feelings of suicide and depression. Your book, sharing your journey and faith experience, has filled us both with hope and inspiration. We are so blessed to experience the love you have for us, the time you take to care about us, and the warmth and kindness of your heart. I personally believe your ministry is opening before you, and please know you have my love and support forever. God bless you and your family.

Hey Ron and Connie,
Came upon this site. Very inspiring..
Will pick up your book at my local book store.
I hope and pray that all is well with you.
All the best.
I loved your ongoing commentary sharing of your new discoveries with us. We all have had experiences with the spirit world, and it strengthens our convictions beyond our physical senses. I'm excited too about growing along with you. This consciousness knows only wisdom and in that Light, we rejoice and truly share the source -God the good, and the one spirit of the Holy Spirit and are comforted. I support you in all you do. And I encourage others to share their experiences.
Looking forward to reading your book! Do you and Con have any copies at the house I could buy (and have signed by the author?:))
Gabe was such a big help to us during our move a few weeks ago. He is such a sweetie--I swear that boy (man) gets better looking every time I see him!!
Hi Ron - It's been a long time since were in the RI church together. I am in Kodiak, Alaska now but have spent 10 years in Australia and we plan to head back there. We have one daughter, Josephine, 19. I am intrerested in reading your book.
Hi uncle ron it's me summer i read the book and like i said in my letter to you i felt his presence so i just hope you and connie and the cousins are ok bye i love you
Josh was one of my best friends in high school. I used to make wonderful music with him and I still love him dearly. I myself believe in something more after this life and I hope that Josh is enjoying his afterlife... It really hurt when he left and I've been on a path of destruction ever since, but I would love to read this book.
