I lost my Dad to lung cancer on November 8, 1998. It was totally unexpected. My Dad had stopped smoking years ago and was a seemingly healthy, active 73 year old. In August, '98, the doctors said they found the cancer early and would be able to remove it surgically (all the tests were supportive). In September, they removed his left lung; the prognosis was good. On October 28th, a post-operative checkup found the cancer had spread through his spine and he was predicted to live 8-12 months. 11 days later, my Dad died.
In my grief, I searched for answers, comfort, and understanding everywhere. I found little hope for closure until I saw James Van Praagh on Good Morning America. I immediately ordered Reaching to Heaven from Amazon.com.
I read Reaching to Heaven on the plane ride to visit my Mom in March, preparing to arrive and face my Dad not being there. It was my 3rd visit home after his death and I knew how hard it had been to face the reality of his death each time.
What a difference! I felt such peace, love, and hope. For the first time, a believable picture of life after death was painted for me. Reaching to Heaven was truly a Godsend for me.
I am extremely pleased with Van Praagh newest book. I have read both books in just two days!. From the moment I started reading Talking To Heaven I felt like I couldn't put it down, so after finishing that one I couldn't help myself but to read his newest book Reaching to Heaven, which I found to be outstanding!. Before reading this books, I was living a big depresion, and it affected every part of my life. Then something very cool happen. I had a dream with my my Grandfather who past away about a year ago. In the dream he looked much younger, and he told that he was going to be watching me for sometime. At first I was skeptic, but as time pass on, I decided to give it a try to this books related to the after-life. In my search I found James Van Praagh book and while reading it, I found out that a lot of the stuff my Granfather told was also in the book. From then on I have became a more spiritual person, non-judgmental, and all the depression and toughts of suicide that I have before I started reading this book, have completely gone. Thanks to James Van Praagh and his Powerfull book for putting my life in order and learned to live to its fullest.
