    I haven't read this book yet, but hope to soon (Heaven is for real), but have read "The Shack" and would have to recommend it.  While it may not answer all of your questions, it may answer a few and help you to a stronger belief in heaven and God's graces.

    Dear Mark & Linda,
     Just received our copy of " Because Of Blake". It is wonderful and we are just in the first few pages of it. I plan on sharing this with many others.
     Mark, I know when you started to write the book it was very difficult and painful. But, you can be very proud of the finished product. I can't imagine it not touching someone who is already in their walk with Jesus and making that relationship even closer.
     GOD is continuing to hold your family in His hand as you continue on this new journey that He has for you.
     We look forward to being able to get together with you all before this year slips away. Life is to short not to visit with dear friends.

    Much love,
    Brenda & Greg

I am sure it will be awesome!! I am saving up and as soon as I can, I will get one. Can't wait!. I would also like it signed by the author. Take care and know you are still in my thoughts and prayers.
