"Twenty My Pretty Ponies" - The True Story of a Mother’s Tragic Loss, Grief and Ultimate Renewal
Judy Corcoran’s worst nightmare, like any mother’s, would be to lose a child. But life can begin again, and the ones we love live on forever.
In 1996, the author’s son was killed in a work-related accident. What followed the tragedy was five years of her trying to cope, understand, and process why her oldest son was taken from her. As a registered nurse, Judy was accustomed to caring for the elderly and offering solace to the loved ones they left behind at the end of their lives. Although a grieving process occurred, most were comforted by the fact that a long, full life had been lived. Witnessing death was something she experienced throughout her career yet she had always believed in that “somewhere else” where we went after life on Earth ended. But her son’s passing caused her to lose faith in that belief. She was terrified and questioned life after death. She lost all hope until something happened that caused a magnificent and resilient spiritual awakening: Her son brought her answers.
She experienced “contact” from him and received the answers she needed in order to believe again, not from his death, but from him. This moving journal is a beautiful narration of a mother’s experience that will give comfort to anyone who has lost a loved one. Life can begin again and the ones we love live on forever.
“In a world so filled with tragedy it makes a refreshing change to hear a story about a loss of this magnitude that has resulted in such inspiration and growth. Without dwelling on the loss of her son or the fatal accident, Judy shares her honest tale through grief, acceptance and understanding. Not an easy journey, nor one that is easy to tell. Yet she shares it frankly, without self-pity, and with a genuine depth and clarity that enables people everywhere to travel with her.
As Judy says so eloquently, this is a story about what her son has taught her, not what she has learned from his death.
“This well-written, honest story sheds light on a parent’s worst nightmare, while at the same time offering insight and proof to all those who have ever wondered what happens to us when we leave this mortal plain.” - Elizabeth Bezant, Writer and Writing Coach
