With Allison Gilbert, author of the critically-acclaimed “Always Too Soon: Voices of Support for Those Who Have Lost Both Parents,” in conversation with Bill Ritter, anchor of WABC Eyewitness News.
This dialogue showcases creative and meaningful ways to keep the memory of loved ones alive.
Please join New York City legend and anchor of WABC-TV Bill Ritter in conversation with author Allison Gilbert about her new and groundbreaking book, Passed and Present: Keeping Memories of Loved Ones Alive. Passed and Present has been featured in People magazine and Arianna Huffington and Maria Shriver have tweeted about it. The discussion will focus on ways we can honor, remember, and celebrate the family and friends we never want to forget while recognizing what Bill Ritter calls “estate planning for the heart” — ways we can strengthen our relationships with loved ones before they die. Ritter will reveal aspects of himself most viewers never see—the myriad ways he pays tribute to his father’ s memory and how the loss of his dad fueled a sweeping two-part series for ABC’s World News Tonight, one of the proudest achievements of his career. There is science behind these joyful acts: the more we celebrate loved ones who have passed, the happier and more fulfilled we are in the present.
