Although she turns everywhere for professional help in saving her family through marriage counseling and psychiatric intervention, Kelly Cyr suffers tremendously in the tragedy of losing her family.

As she shares poignant pieces of her life, she holds nothing back in baring her brutal tale. Unable to let her go, her husband divorces her in his rage and revenge. Nothing solved, he continually abuses her until she is driven to a nervous breakdown.
"I am now making an altar for every woman and child abused by the filthy hands of an unworthy man. And it is gently raining outside. It's funny, as every time I am sitting here, doing my God's gift, and keep perservering in the hardest struggle of my life, God puts haloes then around me. He cries with the soft rain, every time I write about the sorrows that have been put on me. I keep telling Him, I am past that point now, and I write because I am after justice..." from Supreme Love.
Absorbing, shocking, filled with suspense and surprise, this compelling memoir will awaken you to the truth and the aftermath of what really happens when domestic violence occurs. Supreme Love will stand alone as an unforgettable story for all time, a woman's spiritual odyssey and a true testament of God's real presence and His love.
"Jesus, come get me."
These were the last words my grandmother ever spoke. For four days she called out to her mother and father, her ex-husbands, family and friends, all those who had died before her. We, her living family members were all gathered around her, but not once did she call on any of us. Her eyes were focused upward as if she was gazing at the many different spirits awaiting her. My three aunts and my mother nervously hovered around her keeping a death vigil as she languished. Several grandchildren lingered in and out as a family nurse friend kept watch and one son-in-law came in to say his final good-bye.
