My Dearest Family,

            There are some things I’d like to say, but first of all, I want to let you know that I have arrived OK.  I’m writing this from Heaven where I dwell with God above, where there are no more tears or sadness, there is just eternal love.

            Please do not be unhappy just because I am 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.  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 is so much we must do to help our mortal man.”

            Then God gave me a list of things he wished for me to do.  Foremost on that list of mines was to watch and care for you.  I will always be beside you every day and week and year.  And when you’re sad, I’m standing there to wipe away your 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 years because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.  Do not 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 of all that God has planned.  But if I were to tell you, you wouldn’t understand.  One thing is for certain, though my life in earth is over, I am closer to you now that I ever was before. 

            There are rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb, but together we can do it taking one day at a time.  When you are walking down the street and I am on your mind, I’m walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind.  When you feel that gentle breeze as the wind upon your face, that’s me giving you a great big hug, or just a soft embrace.

            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.  I will always love you, from this land way up above.  I’ll be in touch again soon.
