    If You Find Your Path, The Road Will Form. Kyrie Eleison.

    Dream – Hope – Believe – Journal Post 5 – July 31, 2006

    July 31, 2006 Rachelle came and left a few days ago.  She told me a little more about her dream.  She was walking down a hospital corridor about to come see me and she saw Doug coming down the hall – smiling.  She knew he was dead and he knew he was dead but they […]
