Dedication

Maleikka’s fierce battle with breast cancer ended in 2008. 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—to extend their legacies by letting them move forward with us.
