About the Author


Harvey Hoff is a retired community banker. He is a private person who has been encouraged by many acquaintances to write his story following the death of his wife of 38 years, Susie. His story is one of tragedy brought by ovarian cancer, followed by his becoming more and more reclusive.  This path toward isolation would have been a detriment to his well-being had it not been for a chance meeting with the person who has guided him back from that course.

Harvey now offers this very personal account, hoping that it will encourage others to search for a relationship which will fulfill their lives following such a loss.
