Hope Lives on
Hope Lives on
I worked with Gerry as a Hospice Nurse and can testify to the truth of the subject matter. I've witnessed these events as well. Gerry puts all their stories together beautifully and with the sheer volume of these occurrences, you cannot help but realize there is much more to death than we understand. Hope truly does live on.
In this remarkable book, Gerald Ladouceur, a hospice chaplain for over twenty years, shares his experiences ministering to dying patients and their families. Far from being a memoir of fear and despair, Ladouceur provides a window of hope for what awaits beyond. He shares over eighty anecdotes of God sending spiritual signs of assurance to those about to transition. If looked at in isolation, each of these stories might be considered mere coincidences. In aggregate, however, Ladouceur is able to make a compelling case for the wonders that await us in the next realm. Many readers may find that these stories even mirror there own experiences while caring for a dying loved one. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking answers to the question, "What happens to us when we die?"
I have ordered several copies of this book so far and plan to order more in future. Everybody knows somebody who has died or, sadly, knows somebody who is dying now. The messages will only uplift you and give you comfort and solace. It is a quick read with short chapters but that doesn't matter because you won't want to put the book down once you pick it up to read.
