    Bro. Nelson,
    I’ve read several of your books and have enjoyed them. i just reread Beyond the Veil once again after many years. When I first discovered it not too long after our 18 year old son was killed in an automobile accident, I found my self guided to Raymond Moody’s books (particularly The Light Beyond-which I feel I was guided to by our Heavenly Father in an unusual way) and several other authors research and treatment of the subject. At this reading the story that stood out to me was the one by Heber Q, Hale’s experience in 1920. Just curious as to how you came across it, and felt a desire to know a little more about Bro. Hale. Still doing some research on him but thought you might give me some information on him and where you came across his story??

      Ron, I just discovered your WordPress letter today. I don’t remember where I found the Heber Hale story for my Beyond the Veil volumes. The publisher has asked me to compile all the best stories, including the one by Hebe Hale, to be included in a new volume, Visions from Beyond the Veil, to be released later this year.

    Per my previous message. I found him on find a grave website and that has answered the questions I was curious about. Too often we take things at face value without verifying them for ourselves. I had no doubt you had done so, just wanted to find the original source. Believe I have found it.

    Thanks for your book(s)

    I met you in April 2013 at the Centennial Jr. High School where you were a guest speaker at an essay contest meeting. I have spent 40 years working in International work for the LDS Church. Most of my years involved working with humanitarian efforts. Lloyd Pendleton is one of my colleagues.

    You mentioned during our meeting that you might be able to give me guidance regarding the publishing of some writings I have been doing about the humanitarian efforts of the Church, and its development.

    Would it be possible to meet sometime to get some ideas on how to proceed?
