About the Author:

Alice H. Rampton grew up in Oregon, Thailand, and Japan. She received a bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Oregon and taught elementary school. She is a community activist with youth, historical, and cultural organizations in Corvallis, Oregon. She has received many awards for her civic and international work. Alice codirects The TOUCH Project (Take One Ukrainian Child’s Hand), a nonprofit that works to improve the quality of life for over three hundred children in Ukraine. She is the mother of seven children and a grandmother to nearly twenty. Married to Mark Rampton, a family practice physician, Alice enjoys hiking, traveling, family history, reading, museums, and being with friends and family. When her daughter, Lora, died in 1986, her perspective on the meaning of life changed forever.

Nikki King was born in Spokane, Washington, and loves the Northwest. As a youth, she represented the United States as a student ambassador in Australia. She attended several universities and obtained a degree in sociology and leadership management. Her greatest joy is in the home with her family—baking and doing crafts. She volunteers in her children’s school and serves in her church and community youth programs. She enjoys coaching children’s gymnastics and playing softball. Losing a brother and a daughter, coupled with her background in sociology, gives Nikki a unique perspective on grief and its consequences. In this book, she reaches out to those who are suffering and offers support to those who experience loss.
