On June 28, 1987, four Dallas-based Christian leaders were killed in
an airplane crash as they were returning from a Focus on the Family
retreat in Montana: George L. Clark, chairman of the board and CEO of
MBank; Dr. Trevor E. Mabery, a surgeon who helped found Humana
Hospital-Medical City; Hugo W. Schoelkopf III, an entrepreneur and
sporting goods manufacturer; and Creath Davis, founder and director of
Christian Concern Foundation.
Among the losses their families
shared, Creath's wife, Verdell, also lost part of her identity: No
longer was she a pastor's wife, and no longer was she sure what she
believed. This deeply moving book, gleaned from parts of journals that
she kept during the loss of her husband, offers a source of hope and
healing for anyone experiencing grief. With remarkable honesty, courage,
and generosity, she shares how to examine grief and ultimately find
healing in the process.
