Item description for Gary's Rock by Lois Johnson & Cheryl Courtney Semick...
Overview Gary walked out the door with a beach towel and never returned. School was finally out and he was headed to the beach for a swim with the neighbor kids. Within minutes the lake became his grave. Sudden death ambushes unsuspecting souls, leaving gaping holes and unanswerable questions. Gary's mom, Lois Johnson, faced such news on June 9, 1976, when her fifteen-year-old son drowned just a block from their home in Lake Santa Fe, Metamora, Illinois. Punching the keys on her typewriter, Lois wrote the event again and again, searching, grasping, begging God for answers. They came through pools of tears, at the piano, while at the pew in church, and through the calls, visits, and letters of those who shared her grief. Days crawled cruelly by, but each minute was a stitch that sewed up the hole Gary's death left in the Johnson family. Such tragedies happen every second, yet few end in the joy that the Johnsons found by trusting in God's master plan for their lives. Are you ready for sudden death? How will you handle the instant loss of your schoolmates, parents, children, or neighbors? Do you know where you're going if your life were to end today? Gary's Rock will help you find answers to these questions and more.
