This story is on the back cover of the hard copy dust jacket.

I was Manager of Operations for a well known wholesale club and was monitoring the activities on the warehouse floor one day, my attention was directed to a certain fork lift operator quite some distance away. Charlie was our hardest and most skilled worker. He stands about 6’ 3” tall and is somewhat of a quiet man. Outwardly everything seemed fine, but the Voice Within told me something was wrong. I always carried a special St. Christopher medal with me as a spiritual reminder. I took it out of my pocket, and as I walked across the warehouse floor, I called out to him.

He stopped the machine, I then took notice his eyes were bloodshot and he seemed to be on the verge of tears. I handed him the medal and said, “Take this for a while, it might help you out.”

He had sort of a puzzled look on his face as he took the medal without saying a word.

A few hours later, he came into my office to return the medal I had lent him, and he shut the door behind him. He turned looked me in the eye and asked me, “How did you know?” I said, “Know what”?

He responded, “It was one year ago today, almost to the minute, I lost my wife in the hospital when you handed me that medal. How did you know?”

I said, “Charlie, I believe in angels, and I was guided to do what I did.”

His eyes began to tear as he said, “Seconds before you handed me the medal I had just finished asking my wife, who is now an angel, for a sign that she was okay.” .......................
