Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom: I read this in conjunction with The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis while taking a "God, Suffering, & Evil" in college. This book reminds me that we must cherish those that are important to us. We must ask them all of the questions that we can while they are still in our lives.
