    I don t think I can even begin to explain how much this book touched me I hope all who read this book are as touched as I am.

    There is really no way to rate this book, nothing would be good enough The range of emotions poured into these stories cannot be given a value, they were, quite frankly, beyond the stars Patric s blogs were heart wrenching yet so inspiring Everyone, including Patric, did him proud Thank you all.
