This book was the eulogy read at my father's impromptu memorial service a couple of weeks ago. My dad was a private pilot who died at age 86. Due to health reasons he was unable to pilot a plane for the last twenty years of his life but his time in the air was something he held dear. Flying was a big part of his life for a long time. On the day my mother received his ashes from the mortuary and bought them to the cemetery she learned that chairs had been set up for a service. My mother, sister, and brothers had nothing planned. However, my sister had a copy of "I'll See You In My Dreams" in her purse. She'd picked it up at her dentist office that morning, started to read it, but didn't finish it before she saw the dentist. She accidentally walked out with the book. So she read it to my family as they gathered in front of the wall where my father's ashes were placed. I live in another state and was unable to attend this gathering, but I purchased the book through Amazon. It brought me to tears. I don't know the author and she doesn't know my family but it was as if she wrote it especially for my dad. Thanks Ms. Jukes for this lovely story. And thanks Stacey Schuett for your beautiful illustrations. My sister's discovery of your book was truly providential.

I read this book after my flight instructor died. He was in an crash and lingered for 2 weeks before he passed. I had a chance to see him but didn't because I didn't want to remember him that way. I do see him in my dreams...he is young and healthy. That was 25 years ago. But this book captured the emotions that I had at the time.

Mavis Jukes' story of a girl on her way to see her uncle, told in both imagination and life, touches both imagined reality and also the tough reality. Our principal character, a young girl, goes through the actions of taking a small vintage biplane off to skywrite for her uncle in the hospital. It cuts to reality as she flies with her mother on a commercial flight to see that uncle who is short on days. The details the author presents, like the preparation of the biplane for flight, and taking off, point to someone who has been lovingly taught this. The details of reality also come into play; the feeling the 767 has as it comes in for a landing ("The plane seemed to sag and grow heavier the closer it got to the ground"). The mother warns the girl about what she will see in the hospital and that it'll be alright.

The story is lovingly crafted story of flying, not of flight. It is also a story of letting go, and honoring that person. Make no mistake, this is a book about the passing of a life, but that is the point of the book: coming to grips with the final visit. It teaches much about leaving a legacy to younger generations, so that they may honor the previous generation.

I love this book. If you've ever had someone close to you die, this is a great book about how to carry those memories forever. Good for both adults and children.

I found this book to be very weird. The book is about a girl talking about what she would do if she were a skywriter. She is going to see her uncle and she dreams of doing things for him, with his plain. The book has good coloring and neat drawings. I think it's nice what she wishes she could do to cheer him up. It a ok book to read. So read it!
