Linda Burhan?s book is filled with humor and heartfelt inspiration to aide anyone facing the challenge of caring for a loved one at the end of life. Her story offers us hope for human strength and understanding of weaknesses during a difficult time. From the altar of God?s House, the monsignor proclaimed, ?Jo McCauley was a force of nature!? And she was. She was a breeze that brought laughter to everyone she met. She was a whirlwind of a volunteer and mother. She was the wind that carried her daughters and son forward on a life of love. But dying and death are also forces of nature, and will not be denied. Linda?s book draws us along an unexpected path ? When Jo?s adult children urged her to move to a senior community near her New York home they expected her to resist. She did more than that ? she refused. Instead, she announced she was moving to Florida to be near Linda ?because, out of all the kids, you make me laugh the most.? And Linda did, while caring for her mother through times of joy and times of pain as Jo?s life on Earth came to a close ?
