Report by LaVon Cole, who collected information from Melody Scholes. Story recounts how an unconscious boy receives a blessing telling him he won't live long. Before dying, he comes to long enough to tell his mother he'll see her again, and to give a more foreboding farewell to his less-religious father (which reforms him).
