Thank you all for the kind words, like these from Connie Fixmer...

"I am enjoying this book so-o-o-o much! Scriptures that I've read before take on a whole new depth when placed in the context of being a person's last message. The summarized biographies are also wonderfully done and have been extremely useful. I love that I can read in short 10 min. sessions, and be so uplifted."


Read what blogger Richard Tait said about the book...

"Why are last words so moving? Could it be that man and womankind, when they are preparing to wrap up the last chapters of their lives and facing the uncertain, yet hopeful realities of their Third Estate, reflect on what is truly important? If so, then there should be no book more important to us, except for the scriptures, than a collection of “last words.” ...Kathleen Ryan, a very talented biographer."
