When registered nurse Sheniqua Johnson loses her beloved niece to a senseless crime, she refuses to cast blame but rejoices in the memories of being a favored auntie. Never giving up hope, Sheniqua remains by her niece’s bedside until Shaquasia Lekea Hodge draws her last breath. Praying for one more moment with her niece, the author persistently confirms “that grief must take a back seat when God has the wheel.” As the author journeys through her personal grief in There's An Angel In Heaven That Calls Me Auntie, she also provides a sincere lesson that we do not shoulder our grief alone. Even when we ask “Can you wholeheartedly trust God even if there is a possibility you won’t get what you want?”, there is an abundance of comfort in unwavering faith in our Father.

Sheniqua Johnson offers sensible suggestions on living through and with the pain of losing a loved one. While the pain does not leave entirely, there are ways to lessen the intensity by remembering that those who pass before us leave a legacy to honor. Leading by example, Sheniqua Johnson honors the memory of her niece by writing this book and including Shaquasia’s name in the author line. Since legacy is a continuation of life, the author remembers her niece by mourning in a positive fashion. In plain language and heart touching commentary, There's An Angel In Heaven That Calls Me Auntie: Finding Strength Through Loss, Living, & Legacy reminds the reader that physical life might end, but memories, no matter how sad, can produce positive results. We can honor the dead by honoring the living.
