In the hopes of helping another grieving parent, I have compiled a poetry anthology of my own works, including a few short stories. Included are a few journaling poems as I myself, struggle with the 1995 death of our elder son, Scott. Secure in Christian hope, we find a peace while we miss him terrible every waking hour.

My book was endorsed by Pulitzer Nominee, Harvey Stanbrough, who put together my poems for his first publication of my works. He wrote: "Marion Sadler's very personal glimpse at the darker aspects of the life cycle will touch the reader, perhaps even sound an alarm, evoking a sense of urgency towaard living life to the fullest while we have it."
And Family Counselor, Laura Boyd, Ph.D., and an ajunct professor at OU,wrote: "Through the pen and tears of this mother, we forge a priceless relationship in anonymity. Sadler shares out loud the prayers and innermost thoughts of mothers and fathers everywhere when tragedy strikes. I do not want to read these poems again. I do not want to know the pain. But I will...do both. And I will cry and I will find life and healing...at least for my soul."
