Tracy LaCroix is a Viginia man with an amazing story to share; after his heart stopped beating for an hour and a half, he cam back spiritually renewed, fortified with an inspirational message of hope and love.  C. J. Golden is from Newtown CT, and though hundreds of miles separate their homes, a series of circumstances brought these two individuals together-and the coincedences are too strong to ignore.  The result is Goden's biography, the story of the near death experience that changed Tracey's life and is one that he implored Golden to bring to her neighbor's in Newtown.
