If you have not seen your name, do not think I've excluded or forgotten you. Here's a big THANK YOU. Nothing you have done has gone unnoticed. Thank you for picking up
Parallel Pasts,
and this book,
The Last Exhale.
Thank you for reading these stories, for telling others about them, for posting about them on your
blogs and social media pages. Thank you for rooting me along, and for joining me on this journey.

It is my hope that the story of Sydney and Brandon will help relationships all across the board. Let us learn to live, learn, grow, and love. We have to be willing to open the lines of communication in honesty and not in fear of the results. Marriage should be a lifetime commitment, not until you don't feel like being married anymore. Let's all work together to make the right choices in the partners we choose for life, because after all, it is our decision.

Julia Blues

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”

13:4-7 (NLT)
