Endorsements & Reviews-

When I read Fragments of Life, I was shaken to see so much of my own life expressed in his poetry. Even though his life has dealt with loss more than most of us, he has dared to share the starkness of grief so honestly that I have been deeply moved. In his writing I identify with similar experiences in my own life like the love of a wife, children, and searching for faith. I will read and reread this book for years to come.

Ragan Courtney, poet, writer, lyricist for “Celebrate Life” and playwright for the

Broadway play, The Earl of Ruston.

He sings into the night sky and heralds what we might still love—some fragments of who we are, some returning wonderment of human attainment and despair, and our longed-for courage of yet another sacrifice bold enough to have its say. This song sets the stage for Al Staggs's Fragments of Life—a work of remarkable beauty and truth.
