New Xulon Book Gives Reason to Hope

Kirby shares the strength and comfort he has found in God, amidst major tragedy

MAITLAND, Fla., Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Roger Kirby's new book, Letters to Autumn ($11.99, paperback, 9781628397130; $5.99, e-book, 9781628397147) touches on a place people suddenly find themselves every day—being parents who outlive their children. Whether through tragic accidents or untimely losses due to disease, this reality is not like any other. Even when parents, siblings or close family members pass, there is nothing quite the same as losing a piece of one's own self. How is it possible to continue living in this circumstance? Kirby shares the answer to this very question in writing on his own journey of twelve years after losing his daughter when she was a toddler.


"There is hope, peace and a promise from God that these lost loved ones will be seen again," states the author. "He gives daily guidance and love to His people through Jesus Christ." What made this loss even more disruptive to their family life is that Autumn was one of three triplets. Through the pages of the book the author also describes how this affected his wife, the other two of the triplets and his two older children. Birthdays and holidays are never the same, celebrations and highlights lack a presence, but through it all God holds the hands of those who need to continue on so they can reach the next life where they will finally be reunited.

Roger Kirby is a father of five, Autumn waiting in heaven and his four living children here on earth. He has a long career in corporate retail management, having worked in the industry for forty years. Readers will learn from someone who can tell them firsthand that life does continue and there is a reason to keep believing, trusting and holding on to the memories of those they will see again. God's promises are true, sure and stronger even than death and the grave.
