My wife and I have read this wonderfully written book. We found it moving, insightful, and well documented. We are going to share our stories for the next edition and will recommend that our friends do as well. Our children are in the process of reading it right now and are thanking us for purchasing it for them. They find the book extremely interesting , innovative and enjoyable. Congrats to the Ains, looking forward to the next edition. Roberta and Howard Sorgen.
About the Author
After the loss of both her father and mother within a year-and-a-half, Meryl Ain became increasingly interested in how people keep alive the memories of their loved ones. She enlisted the help of her husband, Stewart Ain, and her brother Arthur M. Fischman, to research how individuals carry on the values, passions, and legacies of those who are no longer here. Together, they wrote The Living Memories Project: Legacies That Last, published by Little Miami Publishing Company. The book describes through interviews, anecdotes, essays, poems and photographs the way 32 people — celebrities and others — have transformed their grief into positive action and living legacies. The Living Memories Project was recently honored with a Silver Medal in the 2014 Living Now Book Awards in the Category of Grieving/Death and Dying. A former teacher and school administrator, Dr. Ain writes and speaks about issues related to families, parenting, education, children, grief and loss. She is a blogger for Huffington Post and her articles have appeared on MariaShriver.com, and in The New York Jewish Week, Newsday and The New York Times. She holds a BA from Queens College, a MA from Columbia University Teachers College, and an Ed.D. from Hofstra University.
