Death of fiancee
by Irena Booth
I am writing this email in hopes that it will help to change somebody's life.
My husband's fiancée passed away 17 years ago from rare form of Leukemia. She was 22 then. They were young and planning for wonderful life together and she wanted a child so bad
Then, one day she didn't feel well and they went to a hospital. She was diagnosed with Leukemia and had to undergo several cruel surgeries that disfigured her face; and chemotherapy.
She was in a lot of pain, and died in pain. Her screams could be heard from the entry to the inpatient oncology unit.
My husband was devastated. They offered him to attend support groups, but he wouldn't do that. He couldn't cry either.
Time passed since her death, but he could not let those emotions out. One day he was driving his sister to work and he heard Anita Baker song, " I Apologize". He went to the store, bought Anita's CD and was listening to this song for several days, listening only to this song.
And then he decided to write a book in memory of his fiancée. The name of the book is " I Apologize", by Bradley Booth.
All the emotions and untold feelings he poured into this book. This book is a work of fiction, but it based on real events and all the feelings of grief and disbelieve of what happened are reflected in this book.
I read the book and I cried from overwhelming emotions and understanding how hard it must be to live through such a tradegy.
It took my husband 17 months to write this book.
This book is published and available online, but has little to no exposure. I am writing this letter in hopes that people who lost their loved ones can read it and hopefully make peace within themselves and try to move on.
I am a hospice nurse and I see how hard it is for people to cope with their loved one's death.
I think this book might be helpful for people who lost their loved ones and trying to make sense of life without them.
