“I suspect that every saved soul in heaven is a great wonder, and that heaven is a vast museum of wonders of grace and mercy. A palace of miracles, in which everything will surprise everyone who gets there.”
Charles Spurgeon, ‘Feeble Faith Appealing To A Strong Savior’

During a neurological check by the doctors they pointed to Dennis’s wife and asked, ‘who is that?’ expecting him to say, ‘Heidi,’ Dennis said, “Oh, that is my angel’. Full of life, and love, and peace, and hope, Dennis earned the respect of those who knew him.
