This summer, we stumbled upon a request in the Missoulian newspaper.

The request was simple. There was a young man in Missoula whose last wish was to visit Glacier National Park. Of all the places in the world that he wanted to see before his time here on earth was over, it was Glacier.

With the help of a few, his wish came true. He traveled to Glacier National Park in July with his family, where he stayed at Lake McDonald Lodge, took a boat tour on Lake McDonald, donned Glacier National Park gear and toured the Going-to-the-Sun Road.

Now it’s a few months later and this young man has left the earth.

When I read his obituary yesterday, I couldn’t help but cry. My heart went out to his family, the people who loved him and the people he loved.

His trip to the park this summer touched my heart. To the angels that helped his wish come true, thank you.

Heaven on Earth.
