Don and Lucille Henrick are faced with the dilemma of losing their one and only daughter to Cancer. They also could not have any more children due to Lucille’s medical condition. They considered themselves good and strong Christians in the Biblical teachings of Jesus Christ, especially that there is life after death because of Jesus Christ’s resurrection. They also raised their one and only daughter Alice in those beliefs, never anticipating any illness later would occur which would spiritually test them. Alice was so much a joy to them in every aspect of their lives.
Could they stay strong in their beliefs if their daughter succumbed to the disease? Naturally, as Christians, they kept their hopes up in prayer that Alice would recovery. But at the tender age of 8, Alice dies. The story tells the circumstances of the couple’s struggles before and after Alice’s death, and how they overcame their sorrow because of their religious beliefs.
My Motivation In Writing This Book:
Though this book is fiction, it is also my conviction that death is not the end of life, for those who believe in Jesus Christ’s teachings. Some of the story is based upon what occurred after the death of my father and mother, especially since I too thought I heard my father call my name, after his death.
When my mother died, I also never experienced such “peace” in a room such as what I never experienced before; and I saw an unusual light leaving a window in the room (which was not caused by a light bulb). I believe it was my mother’s spirit.
How many have kept similar incidences in their memories believing if they told them, they would possibly be considered insane.
