Must Read: Forgiving Troy: A True Story of Murder, Mental Illness and Recovery Book by Thom Bierdz

If you're looking for an interesting book to read about struggle, murder, forgiveness and emotion, you must read

"Forgiving Troy: A True Story of Murder, Mental Illness and Recovery"   by Thom Bierdz.
  We connected with Thom through Facebook. He's an amazing artist and painter that many people would know from his television career. (We saw his guest appearance on Murder She Wrote). In his life, he experienced tragedy and triumph. His own brother killed his mother and this book follows that event and the aftermath toward a path of understanding and even forgiveness. This is a fascinating insight into what he endured and a must read.

ABOUT THOM:   Viewers of Young and the Restless would know Thom Bierdz.  Thom has been known to millions as Phillip Chancellor III on CBS #1 soap opera. In 1989, when real life tragedy struck his own family, he penned the best-selling memoir, "Forgiving Troy" and channeled that energy into a successful art career. The author is busy working on the film version of his book, acting projects and art exhibits. The author resides in Los Angeles, California.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Thom Bierdz loved his schizophrenic brother. Despite Troy's erratically cruel behavior, his years of creative threats were not taken seriously. Then the unthinkable happened. Now Thom must delve into hospital records, police reports and his own painful memories in a search for understanding. In this honest, soul-searching account, nothing is omitted as one of TV's most beloved soap stars follows a path towards the ultimate act of forgiveness.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
