It's Taking Chance, the story of how the death and funeral of Chance Phelps (a Wyoming native) impacted the community of Dubois, Wyoming—a town just up the road from my home in Lander—and of how the journey profoundly influenced the life of the officer who accompanied his body back to Dubois.
It's a sorrowful, hopeful, and deeply moving film. And it's on AMAZON PRIME.
Chance Phelps was wearing his St. Christopher medal when he was killed on Good Friday. Eight days later, I handed the medallion to his mother. I watched them carry him the final fifteen yards. I felt that as long as he was still moving, he was somehow still alive. When they put him down in his grave, he'd stopped moving. I didn't know Chance Phelps before he died. But today, I miss him.
