Will Heffner is somebody new.
He can't remember when it happened. It's a blank in his mind.
But the Andreas man realizes he is no longer the same person.
Sure, he has the same name and the same body. But he's altogether new.
The man he once was is gone.
"The Will Heffner that I was is dead," he says. That person disappeared in an accident at age 27.
Will was a strong, hard-working manual laborer who dug ditches for a firm under contract with a major utility.
But on May 20, 2004, a terrible event took place that would reshape his life.
