To my dearest family, some things I’d like to say; but first of all to let you know that I arrived ok.
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.
That night I had to leave you when my life on earth was through, God picked me up and hugged me and said, “I welcome you. It’s good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone; as for your dearest family, they’ll be here later on. I need you here so badly, as part of my big plan. There’s so much that we have to do to help our mortal man.”
Then God gave a list of things he wished for me to do, and foremost that list of mine is to watch and care for you. I will be beside you every day and week and year, and when you’re sad, I’m standing there to wipe away the tears.
When you lie in bed at night the days chores put to flight, God and I are closest to you in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth and all those loving years, because you’re only human they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry, for it does relieve the pain. Remember there would be no flowers unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you of all that God has planned, but if I were to tell you…you wouldn’t understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over, I am closer to you now than I ever was before.
And to my very many friends…trust… God knows what is best; I’m still not far away from you…I’m just beyond the crest.
There are rocky roads ahead of you and hills to climb…but together, and with Jesus, we can do it taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy, and I’d like it for you too… as you give unto the world, so the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who’s in sorrow, or in pain…then you can say to God at night, “my day was not in vain.”
And now, I am contented that my life it was worth while, knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is down and feeling low, just lend a hand to pick him up as on your way you go.
When you are walking down the street, and you’ve got me on your mind, I’m walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind.
And when you feel that gentle breeze or the wind upon your face, that’s me giving you a great big hug, or just a soft embrace.
And when it’s time for you to go, from that body to be free, remember…you’re not going…you are coming here to me!
God sends His love…
