nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; John Hanson knows how to face the death of an aged Christian; celebrate it. After all, isn't it selfish to grieve when the departed goes to a better place? Being in charge of the funeral for his grandmother, Nanna, John arranges for a happy atmosphere, but not everyone understands. Tabitha, his twelve-year-old daughter, who is attending her first funeral, perceives the conflict in a very personal way. During the days before Nanna's death, Tabitha had been comforted by dreams of the lady's glorious entrance into Heaven, but she truly misses Nanna's presence and wonders if her inner yearnings are wrong.
nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; Tabitha has also had dreams about her best friend, Rose Grayson, haunting dreams that showed her friend as lost and in terror in the afterworld. No, Rose is not a Christian. In fact, her father, Phil, is an atheist, a bold atheist. Phil and Rose attend Nanna's funeral, and when Tabitha claims to see a vision of her departed great grandmother, Phil suggests to John that Tabitha should undergo therapeutic counseling. John decides on another path, but the conflict raises doubts about his daughter's mental and spiritual stability.
