An Inspirational Book about Life, Love and Loss



“It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Later”

Richard Lawrence Belford is a very well published Canadian Inspirational Writer who has been on a twenty-year creative journey that’s been fueled by his genuine desire to provide faith, comfort and hope to those in grief.

He has written a book entitled “It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Later” that includes; beautifully illustrated artwork, inspiring quotes and a collection of his inspirational parables, accompanied by the stories behind their creation.

A parable by definition is a symbolic short story that illustrates or teaches some truth, religious principle or moral lesson.

Richard trusts that his parables, along with these stories will stir some emotions in you that we’ve all felt, emotions that can help bring some small measure of solace to those grieving the loss of someone dear to their heart.

Now, although “It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Later” is about loss, it’s also about the lives and love shared by; mothers, daughters, fathers and sons; husbands, wives, sisters and brothers; grandparents and grandchildren; aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins; mother, daughter, father, son, sister and brother in-laws; and every one of their inseparable friends. 

As just one of literally millions of people who have lived, loved and experienced loss Richard strongly encourages you to read this book. He truly hopes it inspires you to always try and say; “I’ll see you later, instead of goodbye.”

Richard has dedicated the book to the memory of his father not only for all he taught him, but also for what he has become and hopes it makes him proud.
