"To whom it may concern,
I am writing you today on behalf of Naomi Havens and her book. My name is Reagan Gibbs and I am a two time Army widow. My first husband was killed in action in
2005 and my second husband was
LOD in 2009.
Naomi and I met at a send off for Snowball Express. It's a function that is held to honor the children of our fallen service members. She came to the send off one
year and offered her book and a plush toy to all the Gold Star Children leaving out of Savannah.
The "what if monster" is very real. We all sit around at some point in time and wonder, "what if this happened," or "what if this hadn't happened?" Naomi's book is a
great book for kids who are struggling with the "what if's" of life.
I have recommended her book to friends of mine. Recently I had a friend who passed away unexpectedly. My friend struggled with PTSD for the last several years.
He left behind a wife and two small boys. I believe in Naomi's book and the lessons and comfort it can give so much I ordered the boys a set. The fact that there is
a toy that the children can hug and hold onto is such a great comfort.
I wholeheartedly think Naomi and her book can help so many. I hope you will consider supporting her and her mission to help children. The book is not just for
children who have lost a parent or loved one, but children struggling with hardships in general." RG
