Gift Books : "Walks With Farley" / A Journey Of Loss, Love, And Lotsa Tail Wagging

From the author :

"Walks with Farley" is the book version of a Facebook photo album that documents the daily walks taken with my Jack Russell Terrier, Farley, who came to live with me in New Jersey after the death of my son, Maurice Mannion-Vanover. The book took shape after friends requested a permanent form for the photos and comments that accompany them, all written on my Blackberry (and later, Droid) while actually out walking. All profits from the purchase of the book will be donated to my son's high school, Shepard Academy, in Morristown, NJ, and his summer camp, Camp Henry at Lake Logan, near Asheville, NC. Thank you for your support, love, and encouragement!


Those Walks With Farley Are RealTimothy J. Mannion grew up in Torrington, Connecticut, and graduated from The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. He has worked in human resource information systems at The World Bank Group, Ernst & Young, LLP, and Citigroup as a business analyst. An adoptive father of two sons, Kindoo and Maurice, an amateur photographer, singer, organist, music arranger, and author. Upon the unexpected death of his younger son Maurice in Canada in early 2011, he was adopted by a Jack Russell Terrier named Farley, who contributed to his healing from Maurice's loss. While taking "Walks with Farley", he captured fleeting moments of natural beauty, the type that would usually be missed by others, and posted them to a Facebook photo album along with descriptive and sometimes poignant commentary. This volume gathers together a selection of those photographs and comments, all composed while on the sidewalks while walking with Farley. He and Farley live in Montclair, New Jersey.
