In June of 1980, Larry and Dollie’s only child, five-year-old Melody, drowned in a backyard swimming pool in Tyler, TX.
They found her lying face down in the middle of the pool. After life-saving measures were given, she came back to life and a few days later began to tell details of her visit to Heaven.
From seeing the splendor of Heaven’s gates, visiting with family members she’d never met on earth, to seeing Jesus himself and experiencing his tender favor and intimacy, she describes in detail all that she saw. Every part of her story lined up with the word of God. This book is that story.
