About this book

Book Summary

If you had one hour to live and could make just one phone call, who would you call? What would you say? And why are you waiting?

Richard Carlson's sudden, tragic death in December 2006 left his millions of fans reeling, but even their many letters, calls, and e-mails couldn't erase the loss felt by his wife and partner, Kristine. To assuage her grief, she pored over a quarter century's supply of love letters, reliving the emotions and cherishing her late husband's memory. In a profoundly moving act of healing, she focused on one letter full of particularly apt questions, which Richard had given to her on their eighteenth anniversary, and answered these questions with keen insight and fresh passion. Kris offers her heartfelt response to Richard's moving letter.
