To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.”
— Barbara Bush

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 22, 2022 / -- Jill Gilson’s Dad’s Journey: The One That Taught Us How to Love serves as a moving tribute to a life well-lived, even in the face of overwhelming challenges that threaten to tear us apart. This memorable and heart-warming memoir contains lessons learned through the evolution of a loving and caring family. This memoir makes one realize that we are still together even after death — that love knows no boundaries nor dimension.

Dad’s Journey: The One That Taught Us How to Love tells the moving story of a family who has nothing but each other to rely on to endure a life-changing event. Arnie Kustka’s normal and peaceful life turned upside down when he became paraplegic from a blood infection and experienced the end of his life from the nauseating height of a wheelchair. The long list of things that he would no longer be able to do grew. The dizzying challenges that he needed to overcome increased.

Arnie’s family’s emotions went haywire as Arnie’s health gradually deteriorated, but their determination to give both Arnie and his wife, Shirley, the best life they could have remained constant and intact. The married couple’s four children did their own part in caring for their parents, no matter how big or small.

Even though Arnie’s legs would no longer work, his sense of humor and love for a good joke was never lost. His journey was not a walk in the park, but with Shirley walking by his side, they slowly learned to accept his condition. The family’s faith and love for each other strengthen even after Arnie’s passing. They soon realize that God had a plan for Arnie.
