Dear Andrew

Robert M. Goor

It is not unusual for a father to write to his son. However, these beautifully written letters, spanning over 20 years, are far from usual, as the author began writing them a week after his 8-year-old son's untimely death...


Dear Andrew is extremely simple in its focus, and, at the same time, extremely complex in the range of life issues and feelings that it touches upon. While searingly personal in its content, it is, nevertheless, universal in its meanings. Because the letters were written in real time, they open the door to the very essence of grief, indirectly giving the bereaved permission to feel all there is to feel in their loss and to express those feelings openly.


Inspiring and profoundly hopeful, Dear Andrew is an eloquent tale of deep feeling, of growth, of a father's unconditional love, and of a journey to peace. So many books are only for those who have "lived it". This book is about healing in its broadest sense.


Dear Andrew lights a candle for those who have experienced any kind of loss, and is a moving experience for anyone who reads it.
