My husband, Mark, had always suffered from depression, but during the winter and spring of 2008 it began to get worse. After he went missing for twenty-five hours, a frantic search began—and ended when Mark was found dead in his car. My three kids and I struggled to cope with our loss; the pain was unbearable. For the past seven years I have been on a journey that has taken me through tragedy and spiritual healing. Through a series of events, I was drawn to Lily, a gifted medium. From that point on, my life changed completely. I learned things I would have never thought possible—such as the fact that life continues after death. I learned Mark was in the gray space and hadn’t gone into the light. I also learned I had another purpose, or, as Lily put it, “the divine has a greater purpose for you, and you’re the best candidate to help those who are in between realms.” Through this incredible journey of loss and survival, I found this undying faith in the heart of darkness—recognizing this as Mark’s gift.
