This is an unusual approach, and though I kind of doubt any of us will actually have the experience of a detour on the way to heaven, the message touched me, "Watch your service, Gabriel. Listen to what your family and friends say about you. Witness what you meant to those you care the most about. This is your gift. Treasure it.” Those "minutes" that we thought weren't that important, are our gift to others.
Interesting story. I would consider using a different name for the character - Gabriel made me think HE was the angel at first. A series of moments - life passes so quickly. Good thoughts.
Certainly an unusual approach but I liked it. I have heard comedians joke that some eulogies are so exaggerated that even the deceased wouldn’t recognise himself. But it is nice to think that a faithful husband, father and missionary might have this opportunity to hear himself honoured by his peers.
