Her Final Gift
Love stories don't just happen in the movies made in Hollywood,
they happen to everyday people living in cities and small towns all across America. This is the story of Harmon and Eula Dunlap. They met and fell in love in a cafe in a small Arkansas town that was nestled alongside the St. Francis River and surrounded by cotton fields.
Being actively involved in their church and community they were known and loved by everyone. The hard-working, God-fearing people of Lake City supported and prayed for Harmon and Eula, as they traveled the long and difficult road of Eula's illness, and the challenging decision to continue a pregnancy that her doctors had advised against. This is a bittersweet love story in many different forms.
