"I heard Professor LaGrand speak in London and he has done extremely important work over the decades. Thanks to him, the "other side" and its incessant effort to bring solace and hope to the living is much better understood today. His empathetic comprehension of spontaneous after-death communications, whatever their source might be, is an inestimable contribution to an optimal coping with loss and grief."
Swiss Coordinator of the Scientific
and Medical Network

"After reading Dr. LaGrand's excellent book 'Messages and Miracles - Extraordinary Experiences of the Bereaved' I had the great pleasure to invite him to give a talk at the Scientific and Medical Network in London. What Dr. LaGrand is doing is speaking to us about something that is actually very normal and very common. I am grateful for his work because he talks about experiences that are extraordinary to what we consider to be the 'ordinary state of mind'. Dr. LaGrand is making an important contribution which helps improve the quality of life for many bereaved people of all ages. If you have the chance to attend one of his workshops or talks, do take it. I think it is a privilege. He is a warm, thoughtful, approachable, highly educated and open minded man with an important message and a lot of experience in this field."

"In answer to the question 'What did you like the most?' Everything – lots of good things to think about! (In grief and life)"
"Dr. Louis LaGrand is an excellent speaker and he engages the audience very well. I also think Dr LaGrand is a dynamic speaker and I learned a lot today. As an Army chaplain at Fort Shafter, I will use what I learned to help other soldiers and families who are dealing with death and loss in Iraq and Afghanistan.
"I had the pleasure to work directly with Lou LaGrand for a social worker's seminar on the topic of Extraordinary Experiences. He is a dedicated grief professional committed to helping others understand the extraordinary experiences phenomena that millions of people have experienced. Lou delivered a very interesting and meaningful program for our audience. His program was very well received, and we were very pleased that we had the opportunity to work with him."

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT LOVE LIVES ON
"This inspiring book demonstrates that 'mysterious' encounters with the deceased are in fact critically important parts of the healing process."
- Bruce Greyson, MD

"As I came across this book, I was thrilled to read it, and truly realize how it is fitting for 'ALL' who are grieving."
