This 100th episode of Touched by an Angel also marks the 100th assignment of Heavenly caseworker Monica (Roma Downey). And it's a real heartbreaker, involving eight-year-old Petey Carmichael (Joseph Cross), who is dying of cystic fibrosis. Taking his fate in remarkable stride, Petey gives Monica a lengthy list of the goals he wants to meet before he enters Heaven. Foremost of his wishes is that his mother Audrey (Wynonna Judd), a too-busy writer of TV jingles, finish composing the song she had started when her son was born. Petey also wants Monica to arrange a meeting between his best friend Cornelia (Mika Boorem) and her idol Celine Dion (as herself). But there is one request that may never come to pass: Though Petey wants to leave his hospice bed and die at home, his HMO manager Eric (Fredric Lane)--who happens to be Cornelia's dad--refuses to break the rules. The episode's musical highlights include Celine Dion's rendition of "Love Can Move Mountains", and guest star Wynonna Judd's performance of the title song "Psalm 151".
