Ray of Hope
What you are about to read is testimony from a family and a testament to family.
by Kathie Chambers and Martin Giovannini
Ray of Hope: A Family Remembers is about family, hope, and, at its heart, a love story between mother and son.
After Kathie’s son Raymond, the middle of five children, died of melanoma cancer at the age of thirty-six, she was devastated. Shortly after, Ray began communicating with her through automatic handwriting—an uneasy transition for some but a natural one for Kathie, a seasoned teacher of meditation and metaphysics.
Through his automatic handwriting, Ray often spoke of his joyous life on “the other side"—studying, traveling many universes, using his ability to be in multiple places simultaneously—but mostly he spoke of his love of and communication with his family.
Ray of Hope: A Family Remembers is also about a parent and a family coping with the loss of a loved one and their unique way of grieving, according to their belief systems and support networks.
Ray’s hopeful message that life continues after death encourages us to know, appreciate, and celebrate family. Because life transcends our existence in this world and extends beyond our senses, we can continue to connect, communicate, and carry on our relationships. And, as Ray says, “It is wonderful!”
