Praise for 126 Days, 11 Minutes

Not all men have the courage and heart Lawrence reveals in this jewel of a book. I have been happily married to my wife, a two-time cancer survivor for almost fifty years. This brilliant story is reminiscent of my story--our meeting, falling in love, and many life challenges. Bravo, as I have known too many men who, when their wife, lover, partner, or roommate become sick, they leave—not Lawrence. 

Lawrence recounts a highly personal, uniquely detailed, and intimate love story. It is an authentic multi-dimensional tribute to a fabulous woman, who came into his life while in his 60’s. Feel the intensity of selfless love between two souls. They were destined to meet, love, and (for one) die— for the other, a gift of lessons learned shared in a story. 

You will enjoy reading this moving book multiple times, as I have. During your first read, enjoy the story; in the second, savior the feelings, thoughts, and motivations of “handsome” and his “beautiful” lover; and on the third, analyze and synthesize the wonderful life lessons into your journey.  Buy, read, and share this brilliant story—see why we are blessed with life.   As Al Pacino said in Scent of a Women —"Tango On."

Warning!  You might not be able to put down 126 Days, 11 Minutes  before finishing it in one sitting.  You might not be able to keep your heart closed against love as unreasonable as it can get.  You might even become unreasonable  yourself and start  living and loving more.  Don’t tell me I didn’t warn you!

This is one of the most unusual love stories I have ever read. Why? Because its brutal, astounding, loving, caring detailed description of love, care and the process of dying is both disturbing and beautiful.  Most importantly, it is a true story that invites everyone to never give up on life nor love.
