The discovery of Jon David’s malignant brain tumor was the most devastating news ever received by Charles Bugg and his family. In the midst of David’s ordeal, however, emerged new insight and meaning that transformed the family’s experience from grief to gratitude.
“The vocation of witness is central in both legal and religious circles. Honest human beings who share their perceptions of what has occred always make the mystery of things a little clearer. Charles Bugg is such a witness in these pages. He reminds us that grief is bigger than bereavement and that sometimes the chronic situations of living with loss are just as demanding. His trust in God visibly grows in this saga and becomes greater than his pain and doubt. These words should put heart and hope into other hones sufferers.”
