Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A few days before she is scheduled to board the space shuttle Discovery, astronaut Josie Saunders (played by ER's Sherry Stringfield) is told that her mother has died. Josie's husband Greg (Brian McNamara's, who is also one of the space mission's Capcoms, worries that his wife may not be emotionally ready for her voyage, and seriously considers washing her out. This crisis could not have come at a worse time: Josie has all but promised young cancer victim Diana (a pre-Heroes Hayden Panettiere) that she will deliver a message to God while flying in space. Monica (Roma Downey) endeavors to alleviate the pain of both Josie and Diana, with the help of a celebrity ghost! Real-life astronaut Dr. Sally Ride appears as herself in this final episode of Touched by an Angel's fifth season.
