On November 29, 1999 Rick and Sharon Reece received a phone call which no parent ever wants to receive. "Your son John did not return from a hike he took over the Thanksgiving holiday." This book tells the story of the search (and loss of) for John Reece, but also tells how Rick and Sharon found hope in the midst of that trial. Anyone who has gone through the trial of losing a loved one, especially a child, will be able to identify with this true story. It is our prayer that you will also find hope and encouragement and perhaps a new perspective of eternity.
