Composed by Alanna Knobben, Carry You With Me
is a heartfelt story of a mother’s love and the loss of her sweet child… followed by healing and hope. Whimsical illustrations by Katie m. Berggren bring to life a deeply personal journey captured in rhyme.
After the loss of the family's second son, Marshall James Knobben, Alanna Knobben turned to paper and pen to begin the grieving and healing process. Letters to her son soon evolved into the beginnings of Carry You With Me
This book is written from a mother's perspective of love, loss, pain and isolation that with time and great care transitioned through to healing, hope and endless love. The loss of every great life impacts not only parents and siblings, but extended family, friends, co-workers and communities. Each with a story to tell.
We hope that this book brings us together to support one another and invites the conversation to begin outside the book. Carry You With Me
is a heartfelt story of a Mother’s love, loss, healing and hope. Whimsical illustrations are brought to life with deeply rooted words and symbols. We remember together the great loves we have lost and cherish all the ways we carry them with us forever.
“I can only say that it was the most enjoyable project I have ever worked on and the way Katie brings ideas and emotion to life with a paintbrush and color makes my heart smile and my spirit shine.”
~ Alanna Knobben
“Creating the paintings for each page of Carry You With Me, following along with the beautiful poetic text, and the whole process of working with Alanna… felt blessed and touched by a magical force. Each step we took together felt perfect and every detail came together as if orchestrated by a kind Universe.”
~ Katie m. Berggren
