Ida Goutman, CEO Cruz Clinic Psychiatric and Psychological Care

My mother was diagnosed with a terminal illness. During this stressful and confusing time, the guidance set out in what was then a draft of Two Envelopes helped ground and organize my mother. She focused on what she wanted to do as outlined in this book and then proceeded to do it. She felt she had a measure of control in a situation that afforded her little control. Our family was so grateful to have this guide. Two Envelopes gave all of us comfort and peace of mind.

Elizabeth Sandler, a daughter of an early user of Two Envelopes

With deep gratitude to Rusty, we have her exceptionally comprehensive book, giving us the permission to gather with loved ones and have productive conversations we all need to share.
