Book:  “Life on the Other Side of You:  A Story of Love, Death, and Renewal” According to Michael J. Meese, PhD (BG, U.S. Army Retiree and son of Former US Attorney General Edwin Meese) this books tells a great love story.  It tells of the tragedy, victory, relapse, small triumphs, and final heartbreak of cancer.  It tells of the inner circle around one who suffers - the close circle of friends, colleagues, and church leaders; and the outer circle of supportive but confused friends, troops, and church congregants.  It is written extremely well in an engaging, sometimes appropriately humorous style, and then later a gripping style (that even makes an old Army guy tear up!).   Life on the Other Side is a great read for everyone and a must read for those helping others suffering from the tragedy of cancer.  (This book is available on Amazon beginning Aug 31st or at the Sept 29th event for $10).
