I read Tuesday with Morrie by Mitch Albom for a counseling class. I loved the book. Then I saw the Five People you meet in heaven. My husband and 15 yr old watched the movie together. It impacted my 15 yr old. We impact each person we meet even though we may never see them again, we have made an impact in that life. We cried and laughed at the same time. Very touching, I recommend it. I could not understand at first Tala asking him to wash her, but then it did. I also read the book the next day. I noticed that both books are related in the impact we all have with each other. I enjoyed the ending, although I will not reveal it. I though Jon Voight did a great job playing Eddie. Recommend the books and the movies.
