Dr. Dearborn died. He was the beloved physician loved by many of his patients. It was quite a shock to the town when he passed. Oddly, his body went missing from the funeral home. Very strange thing indeed.
At first, the mortician tried to keep it a secret thinking he would be able to find the missing body. But several days passed without finding Dr. Dearborn's remains.
Finally, Mr. Edwards informed the family that his body had gone missing and that he was very sorry. The family were not concerned. They were sure his body had been raised into heaven.
Dr. Dearborn's body was never found so it was that it had been raised into heaven. They held the funeral with a closed casket. The family grieved in peace believing their loved one was in a better place.
