This book combines mindfulness with storytelling to create a peaceful way to say goodbye to a child who is facing death. This heartfelt book tenderly guides the child through the dying process using calming imagery and meditation prompts.

It is meant to give the child permission to die, while bringing comfort to both parent (or caregiver) and child during the moments before death. Written and illustrated by bereaved parents Carla and Mark Garrett "My Love Will Follow You There" accurately captures the sentiments many parents struggle to express during those painful last hours with their child and compassionately addresses many fears a child may have before they die.
