"The Bible is as much a book about suffering and grieving as it is about love and salvation", says Mary Ann Froelich, a music therapist who has worked extensively with terminally ill children. Drawing on her experience with the "experts" -- the grieving families who are left behind -- Froelich gives us a seasoned and compassionate look at the significance, hope, and joy to be found in even the briefest of lives.
