About the Author

Carol Kirk WitbeckCarol Kirk Witbeck is the mother of two children and four grandchildren and aunt to forty-four. She has always enjoyed working with the children in her family, neighborhood, church, PTA and 4H groups.

Carol attended Hillcrest High School and the University of Utah. She and her husband reside in the Morgan Valley located in the beautiful Wasatch Mountains of Utah where she enjoys reading, writing, floral arranging, quilting, knitting, crocheting, watercolors, oil painting and camping. Her latest venture is making doll clothes and started a small business to sell her wares. Using the age old adage, “Let your light so shine …’ she called her business “Candle on a Basket.”

When a friend of hers lost her husband to brain cancer, their children had lots of questions that were hard to answer. In response to her friend’s need, she wrote a short story explaining death in a way a child could understand. She realizes that death is not a celebrated topic and is not written about very often because of that very reason. Who really understands enough about death to discuss it? But it is universal and we’ve all known someone who has died and know that death is part of this life experience. However, this is a charming little story of a mother comforting her son with answers to the innocent questions of a child who has lost his father. The story is simple and direct and is written in a loving, tender way. Carol’s hope is that it will bring peace to all who share it with someone they love.

For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

— John 3:16 —
