Donna A Photo Memoir of Love and Loss
Publisher: Mark Dimor
A memoir of hope.
Donna, A Photo Memoir of Love and Loss is a brave and beautiful photo-narrative of a marriage filled with heart, humor, and tears—without despair. This memoir of hope pieces together a life-time of touching and magical memories, focusing on the journey from terminal diagnosis to death and a husband's life after death. 'Donna' tells the story of how and why it did last 30 years and what came before they met—including a box of never-before seen photos unaided by her voice or history.
Grief does not just happen. Grief is a symptom, an outcome of a loss. 'Donna' was written to plumb the depths of grief, love, Donna's life, and them. Mark needed to write 'Donna' to facilitate/reconcile his grief journey with a reckless examination of loss. He thought this was a grief story.
'Donna', the book, is something more. Like Donna, the book is complex with fragments of their story weaved into a message of hope any reader can access. Mark could not be without Donna and their story. The light that pours from the wound called grief is hope.
This book will make you rethink your perspectives on death and grief. It is a story of hope.
