    I have kept up w u throughout ur whole journey an u r an amazing person. I was wondering where u got the book Heaven? My husband has cancer n he goes to duke it’s not curable but they just try n manage his pain. We was told 2 to 3 yrs max n we r on our 8th year n for the most part he is OK but I am forever getting up checking his breathing at night n constantly have in my mind what if today is the day. I hope that don’t sound mean n any way I want him here forever n we have 4 kids 14 down to 9 n my main worry is them bc they struggle so bad w knowing their dad has cancer. I still believe no matter what the doctors say God can cure him. I want to read this book so if u can plz take a minute to respond I will appreciate it. Thanks so much n may God bless u n ur family

    • I got the book back in Knoxville at a Christian bookstore there. I’m sure any bookstore, especially Christian bookstores will have it. If not, Amazon will definitely have it. The author is Randy Alcorn. It’s a fantastic book. I’m not even all the way through it yet and I feel like my understanding and perception of Heaven is already so much better! I hope this helps. And I hope your husband gets a miracle from God. We will keep your family in our prayers! Let me know if you need help finding the book or have any other questions!

        Praise God u don’t know what it means to get a reply from u n if it’s not to much trouble when I come to duke w my husband for scans is there any chance of me seeing u n sweet Owen? If not I completely understand bc I’m sure his immune system is down but it would be anazing.
