Dear Mpho and family,

I have so much gratitude for Desmond. The Book of Forgiving written with Mpho has been a major influence in my life. My daughter was murdered by her ex-fiancee in 2012 and through her spirit and your book I have completely forgiven him and I am trying to help others to be able to forgive through my recently published book Growing Happiness. I have loved all his interactions with the Dalai Lama showing how beautiful a loving relationship can be. Desmond is a beacon for Joy, Forgiveness and Hope.

I will never forget him.

Lots of love,
