nto cutting-edge scientific research as they sought out hope, clarity, and compassion in the sometimes-disheartening world of cancer treatment. Most importantly, he kept an unflinchingly honest diary of their family’s intimate moments: the way illness challenged and deepened their thirty-year marriage; their conversations with Satchi about healing, death, and God; and the final days of Maria’s life, as she relinquished her role as wife and mother, and turned to face her reunion with God.
