Andy Baltins was Lynn's guest on "Living on Purpose" in the summer of 2007.
Profound loneliness and confusion often follow the death of a loved one. Author Andris A. Baltins unexpectedly lost Nancy—his best friend, childhood sweetheart, wife, and the mother of their children—to ovarian cancer. These letters to Nancy following her death share an intimate story of recovery from loss and the enduring presence of love.
Baltins felt called to write the book as a necessary process of working through her death, and what he was to make of himself after she had gone. Many of the author’s experiences—particularly some of the rituals—can be of benefit to others and his wish is to share them with a larger audience who find themselves in the unthinkable situation of having lost a life-partner or someone very close to them.
All author proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to continue the charitable works of Nancy Baltins. For more information www.baltins.com
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
