This is a true story of what happens after a woman receives her unexpected diagnosis of a fatal disease—which is well towards the end of running its course. It’s an account of the journey from the husband’s point of view, narrating just over a month’s worth of days, from hopeful expectations falling to grim reality. That may sound tragic, even depressing, because there is sadness in these pages. But on the contrary, this is a beautiful book about faith, hope, and life even in the face of sorrow. The gracious acts of others paired with the poignant words of the author show the reader a true sense of what it means to truly love someone.

My wife and I had been waiting to hear of a treatment program for her symptoms. Instead, we learned that the cause was untreatable. Life expectancy was one to two years, and she had been dealing with "something's wrong" for quite some time. With a son in college and a daughter in 7th grade, our world suddenly closed in and became very small. Nothing else mattered, and yet everything mattered. Never had my unshakable faith in God been so fiercely shaken. This book is comprised of my journal entries which provide a raw glimpse into my thoughts and emotions of her daily slipping away. It is written with the hope it might help others who must travel this hard journey, losing someone they love.


David Langan shared 22 years of marriage with his wife Zyvonne and they have two children. The couple met and were married halfway through his military career where he served as a pilot in the USAF for over 20 years. He fulfilled another dream before he retired from the military when he graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary with an M.A. in Biblical Studies. He is now an international pilot for a major airline and uses his seminary training in ministries outside the pulpit, serving his local church. He resides in Minnesota with his teenage daughter.
