No one plans to die when their lives are in full bloom, and nothing in Rick and Nancy Fleeters twenty-five years together prepared them to face her death the ultimate personal and at the same time universal human experience.

Dr. Rick Fleeter is a rocket scientist; his wife Nancy Fleeter managed arts organizations, including the American Ballet Theatre and the John F. Kennedy Center. They enjoyed two more than-full lives despite living with her cancer for over fifteen years. By every measure they
thrived as young, successful professionals and as a close and loving couple.

Nothing prepared them for dealing with the cancers accelerating aggressiveness as it consumed her body despite her doctors multiple efforts to combat it. Love Is Strong as Death, a book they began writing together and that Rick finished alone, offers a window into how two lay
persons dealt with illness and death and the struggle to rebuild one life where once there were two.

Love Is Strong as Death is not advice, and it not a romance. Written from behind enemy lines, as Rick puts it, this book personalizes grief, resourcefulness, and fulfillment from the point of view of a highly--scientist and a free-- artistic MBA forced to grapple with emotions and circumstances more powerful than anything they could have imagined.

"A moving tribute to a remarkable woman by an equally remarkable man. This perspective into Rick and Nancy's struggle together and his acceptance of her death gives us a fresh view into ourselves."

Dr. Steve Glazer, congregational rabbi and hospice chaplain

"And this is what I want to consider with you now: how much music can we still make with what we have left after we have been wounded by life? What resources do we have that can help us live energetically and purposefully?"

Rabbi Roger Klein

 

"A personalized search into the soul of all human beings who have ever suffered loss. It is not a depressing book but a positive, uplifting revelation written with unbelievable insight."

Carol Lewicki
