When the diagnosis of terminal cancer was given to Patty Gries in September of 1993, a four and a half year journey was begun that brought to vivid consciousness the precious nature of life, the sadness of death, the totality of grief, the wonder of healing, and the overriding power of faith. Throughout the ordeal, Ron Gries wrote as he was so strongly affected by the experience. In these pages he shares this most personal writing. Book jacket.
