do you believe?
do you believe in heaven?
do you believe that we are bound by love for all eternity?
Do you believe that eternity is before AND after death?

In this photo you will recognize
he is performing in Amarillo Texas in 1956
in the audience circled in red are 
(uncle) Gene
Lue (soon to be aunt)
they had not yet met
but today they have 3 children, 5 grandchildren and 1 great
they have been married 50+ years

in the movie Made in Heaven two souls are in love
they come to earth and are given 30 years to find each other
they are born in the same hospital...and throughout the movie their paths come so close
almost meeting
time is almost up
but love

Their love is deep and joyful, but, unfortunately, flawed: It cannot last forever because McGillis is a spirit who has not yet done her tour of duty on earth, and must leave any day now to inhabit a human body and put in her time. Hutton is heartbroken, and Emmett offers a deal. Hutton can go back to earth, but neither he nor McGillis will remember one another, and it will be up to them to rediscover on earth the love they had in heaven.

What a beautiful story of fate, destiny, and serendipity :)

Timothy Hutton and Kelly McGillis look so young! It's hard to believe that the movie is 27 years old. And that photo of Elvis - amazing! Have a great weekend.

There absolutely has to be an afterlife. All the love that never was must be there. I admit I am a sucker for that type of movie.

I do believe!
That was a great love story
and an endearing post.
My Mom and Dad loved Elvis too
but they were also on the same concert when the Beatles came to our country
and they did not know each other too.
