The Five People You Meet in Heaven is about a man who ends up dying while trying to save a little girl from a ride. His name was Eddie. Eddie goes through the book in 5 different people’s heaven. They are people who were a part of his life whether he knew them or not. My person I am going to tell you about is Marguerite.
Marguerite was Eddie’s one and only love. She was his wife that loved him dearly. She was the only person or thing that made Eddie truly happy. While Eddie was off at war, Marguerite waited for him and stayed faithful to him. She died of a tumor that was on her brain. When she died all was lost for Eddie and his own world. She was his everything. Marguerite was beautiful. She worked at Ruby Pier with Eddie. Marguerite never let Eddie down. She was basically his angel.
Marguerite’s heaven was a lot different than everybody else’s. It wasn’t Ruby Pier where it all began. It wasn’t at the battlefields where Eddie was at war. Her heaven wasn’t in the bank of a river that could heel burns, nor was it at a place where people were safe from Ruby Pier. Marguerite’s heaven was weddings, weddings, and weddings. Every way someone turned, they could see a new wedding. Weddings from different countries of different sorts were everywhere to be seen. Marguerite chose this type of heaven, because she never got her dream wedding. Although she didn’t forget her dream wedding, she still included her own with Eddie when he showed up.
Marguerite’s lesson to Eddie was that love is not lost with death. Eddie thought that because Marguerite died, she no longer loved him. That was far from the truth. She was still more in love with him than ever. Eddie loved her so much that she could feel his love in heaven. He was angry with her, because he thought she wanted to go. Marguerite never wanted to leave her beloved. She wanted to stay, but it was her time to go.
Marguerite’s lesson to Eddie was true and inspiring. When people loose someone they love, they think it...
