I read this years ago and decided to pick it up again.

Just wonderful. I'm so glad I did.

wow that was an awesome read. what a touching story. I think you have inspired me to go back and read it again. my mom actually wrote a note to me inside the front cover. one of the last thing she ever did before her stroke incapacitated her.

Oh yes, put me in the club of people who loved this book. I read it years ago, so maybe a re-read is in order for me too.

TWM is an awesome book.
I didn't care much for Albom's other ones.....but TWM was just pure gold.

I loved this book too. 2 of my kids had it as required reading in high school and my neighbor was actually a student in Morris's class. That neighbor became a career changer to a high school teacher always wondered if that was related.

I wouldn't be surprised. He had a huge impact on everyone he came in contact with, especially his students.

How lucky to have been a student of his.
