‘I don’t have a lot of fear, that’s true,’ ‘There’s a time and a purpose and a place, and I don’t fear death, because I know there’s heaven. I know it.’

‘I felt this incredible acceptance and that everyone has a gift and we’re all God’s children and your purpose in the world is to find the gifts that God gave you.’
