Don Piper: Author and main character who was dead for 90 minutes. A man who goes to heaven and changes others lives.
“When I died, I didn't flow through a long, dark tunnel. I had no sense of fading away or of coming back. I never felt my body being transported into the light. Simultaneous with my last recollection of seeing the bridge and the rain, a light enveloped me, with a brilliance beyond earthly comprehension or description. Only that.”
“I get frustrated describing what heaven was like, because I can't begin to put into words what it looked like, sounded like, and felt like. It was perfect, and I knew I had no needs and never would again. I didn't even think of earth or those left behind.”
“I lived because others wouldn't let me die. Those praying friends are the ones who deserve the admiration.”
“"I still didn't know why, but the joyousness of the place wiped away any questions." (Haley)”
“"Never, even in my happiest moments, had I ever felt so fully alive." (Haley)”
“"Some things happen to us from which we never recover, and they disrupt the normalcy of our lives. That's how life is." (Haley)”
