“Rose Marie, your book is absolutely stunning – not only visually, but the content is incredible as well. Your foreword is raw, vulnerable & moving & Jaro’s poems are deep and meaningful. I have looked at the whole book, but only read a few of the poems at this point. I feel I need to read them slowly to spend time with & digest each one individually. He was an incredibly talented poet. You have taken a heart-wrenching and utterly devastating experience & created something beautiful out of the ashes. Thank you for sharing your experiences. Both your & Jaro’s words will live on to help others.” — Gina White, Founder, St Pete Art Collective
