A Letter from Heaven …… To My Dearest Family

Here are some things I’d like to say,
but first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.

I’m writing this from Heaven where I dwell with God above,
where there’s no more tears or sadness, there is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I’m out of sight,
Remember that I’m with you every morning, noon and night.

The day I had to leave you when my life on Earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, ‘I welcome you’!

When you think of life on earth is over and all those loving years. Because your only human they’re bound to bring you tears.

So don’t be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain.
Remember, there would be no flowers unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned for me.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn’t understand.

You know my life on earth is over but I’m closer to you now
than I ever was before. Now when you are walking down a country road, and have me on your mind, I’m walking in your footsteps
only half a step behind.

Love you All,

Mom, Baba & Lenore

Take Care
