Win Damon, host WNBP radio, Newburyport, MA speaks with local author of the book “A Butterfly’s Journey… Healing Grief After the Loss of a Child,” Barbara J Hopkinson and musician-singer-songwriter Nancy Day about two original songs composed for the book to help bereaved families. 


The two songs:

  • Theme of “A Butterfly’s Journey” a beautiful instrumental, channeled to Nancy from Barbara’s deceased son Brent, when Barbara told Nancy the title of her book.  It is available as a FREE download on the ABJ site.
  • Love Everlasting – the poem for Barbara channeled by her son Brent to  ancy on the 10th anniversary of the motorcycle accident which caused him to lose his life, is also the lyrics for this song.  Barbara feels it is meant to comfort all bereaved families.  “Love Everlasting” is also available on the ABJ site for a $3 tax deductible donation to the nonprofit, TheCompassionate Friends of Greater Newburyport, MA – supporting family after a child dies.

Barbara J Hopkinson’s background is international corporate technology, including ten years with IBM. She is a multiple bereaved parent, which inspired her to write about her journey, to help others.
