TO HEAVEN AND BACK BOOK MADE BY- MARY C. NEAL SHANNON B’S R AND E
REASPONSE In 1999, A kayak accident during a South American adventure took Mary Neal to heaven and back. In heaven she learned from God about, true happiness and joy. On board with Mary was a surgeon and his wife. The accident occurred well they were heading down a water fall. In the story Mary talks about her feelings and her communication with everyone and what happened in after life.
REASPONSE For my responses I drew Mary Neal on the kayak this was a photo right before she went down the waterfall. Why? I knew this was a very dramatic part of her life, on the kayak trip so I decided to draw it. And I knew this was a moment of her life she would never forget.
