Reviews - What do customers think about For As Long As I Can?
A very personal look into the dying process. Jul 24, 2007
My wife and I have a Hospice Ministry and found the book to be a very real look at a family as they dealt with final days of a very dear loved one. The daily process that Dr Cavanaugh details is the struggle that we all will experience at some point in our lives, either for ourselves or a loved one.
Wonderful Aug 14, 2006
Thank you for letting us see into the insite of how it is to go through the death of a loved one, it shows so much what the family is feeling and how they deal with it. It also shows how a man lets go of his family thru their grief and how it brings them together. A MUST READ for anyone who has lost a parent.
Great Hope Jun 26, 2006
This book is a day to day account of a son sharing his father's last days on earth. While parts of this book will break the reader's heart, it also provides great hope for anyone that has unsaved loved ones. Through God's amazing love and grace, relationships were restored and salvation was won. I would recommend this book to all care givers and to those with lost loved ones.
A Journey of Love Jun 21, 2006
I found this book to be a sensitive look at the journey that many families take when a loved one becomes ill. This journey took this family through both physical and emotional pain as they dealt with issues from the past and present. The message of forgiveness, reconciliation and love of God and family is a touching story. Mr. Cavanaugh's style of writing is open and lets the reader see into his heart and that of his family. This book is a must read for all adult children who have elderly parents.
"Only my eye that cannot see cries..." Jun 20, 2006
"...the eye that can see does not." A powerful illustration in the life of a dying man. Roland takes the reader on a moving journey that only a loving son can tell. This book has two gripping themes. One of a prodigal father's return and the other of a son's own self examination as he serves his father emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
