John is dead! John is dead!' I've replayed the words over and over again, ever since my...son took his life...
John and Mary Ellis lost their son. Struck with grief, shock, and anger, John had to do something. So he wrote.
In this compelling book, Author John Ellis displays raw honesty that pours forth from every page. He invites you to laugh, cry, suffer, and pray along with him as he celebrates the life of his son, John. He takes on the self-help book clichés with both anger and levity as he attempts to navigate, not just his way, but the way of his family through this tragedy.
A compilation of memories, conversations, and stories, this book will touch the heart of anyone who reads it. Ellis reminds us that with God, we are never alone, and that all things proceed according to His plan. Ellis bravely uncovers his family's suffering to remind other parents who have lost children that they are not alone and that the memories of their children can live on.
Writing this book has helped Ellis keep the memory of his son, John, alive, and it can assist others with healing as well. It is a rollercoaster of a remarkably honest, therapeutic journey, one that reminds us all to live each moment to its fullest. We Are John is a loving tribute to a man whose life ended too soon, but who lives on in the hearts and minds of those who knew him best.
