To whom it may concern:
I am pleased to write this letter of reference for John Abraham.
During this past year I have observed Mr. Abraham as a presenter and facilitator of many End of Life programs.
I have also worked with John in organizing programs, and saw his strong and compassionate approach when
consulting with individuals in addressing their personal concerns.
As a psychotherapist/counselor,
I can state unequivocally, that John is a patient and non-judgmental listener. He is able to size
up the needs of individuals and their families and respond in accordance with those needs versus his own.
his many years of experience and education John has developed a wealth of information which he shares
expertly and generously. His style is to present facts, provide hand outs and share information with
authority and humor. The breadth of his knowledge is extensive, and his generous, gentle manner creates an atmosphere
where difficult subjects can be easily broached.
I recommend him highly as a presenter and personal

"There are speakers who just offer great information and insight and
then there is John Abraham. One needs only to attend a talk or workshop given by John to know that personal awakening of
intellectual and spiritual inspiration will be realized. The best part, however, is that this awakening is stimulated
because of John's magical ability to be both poingnant and funny while speaking about the difficult stuff of life.
There is nothing cliche about John. I left his workshops feeling completely energized.
With all the lectures and wrokshops offered at the ADEC conference, John's sessions (out of the 16 sessions
I attended) resonated most for me....
I truly cannot thank John
Abraham enough for all his gifts."

"John's a very down-to-earth kind of guy. Doesn't mess around with the trivial. He centers in on what's
really important, the meaty stuff, but he can do it with a sense of humor, not taking himself or the world too seriously.
John has had to face life's ups and downs, and he has done it as a survivor; and he has learned some things he can give to
others to help them be survivors also." Doug C. Smith, M.A., M.S., M.Div.
Doug has done over 1,000 all-day seminars. He has done them
in all 50 states for a variety of institutions and communities. He has published in many journals and is the author

is a gifted educator and speaker, committed to helping others understand death and the process of dying. His workshops
are inspirational and are useful to people of any religious belief or none. After attending this workshop, I am more
competent in my practice with issues of death and necessary family supports during the process of dying and the family's
subsequent grief and recovery process. I am now able to achieve a great level of comfort with the work and experience
less fatigue from my work in this very intimate process."
