Walk to Remember
& Angel Rededication
October 6, 2000
guest speaker was the author of The
Christmas Box, Richard Paul Evans. I had the privilege of meeting Mr.
Evans after the reception. I was too nervous to ask for a picture
with him though and barely got out that I would like his
autograph. I had forgotten my hard back copy of the book, so he
gave me a soft cover copy and autographed it for me. As some who
know me recall, I've always wanted to be a published author so not only
has the book touched me as a grieving parent, but also Mr. Evans' story
behind becoming a best-selling author is one that inspires and gives
hope for an unrealized dream.
