ONE MORE DAY.....

ONE MORE DAY...
 
If you could spend one more day with a loved one already departed, how would you spend it? What would you do? Mitch Albom became fascinated by this question while writing the book, For One More Day.

Albom found time and again that people wanted to spend an ordinary day doing ordinary things with the people they loved. Almost everyone wanted to tell this special person "I love you" one more time. Many said they wanted to do the habitual things they always did with the person such as head to the movies, or eat at a favourite restaurant, or just sit around and talk about old times.
