A Letter from Heaven

To my dearest family, 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 live with God above.

Here there are no tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

 

Please do not be unhappy just because I’m out of sight.

Remember that I am with you, every morning, noon and night.

That day 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.”

 

God gave me a list of things he wished for me to do,

And foremost on the list was to watch and care for you.

And when you lie in bed at night, the day’s 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 are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.

But 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 all that God has planned,

But if I were to tell you, you wouldn’t understand.

But one thing for certain, though my life on earth is O’er,

I’m closer to you now than I ever was before.

Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Lynchburg, is assisting the family.

I miss you and even though I didn't get to see you all the time I still Loved you. Sometimes I got mad at myself because I thought I was the reason you where gone. Mom told me not to be sad even though you where out of sight she told me I was closer to you then ever. I love you and miss you I still cry for you some nights and wish you could be here and some nights I fell like you are in bed with me tucking me in and singing to me till I fall asleep and would stay with me during the night. I love you and Miss you please watch over me and take care of me. Love your Daughter - Faith

Watching you grow into the man you became was my joy. Being a part of your life and knowing you was my gift. All the memories we shared were good and bad, but I Loved you. The sorrow I felt the day you were gone, it took some of me with you. Until we meet again in Heaven. Love Dad

Eric, the day God called you home was the worse day of my life, and I will never get over it. I miss seeing that special little grin you had, your laughter, and everything about you. I guess God had a job for you, and he called you home. My heart is breaking, and I still can't comprehend that you're gone. You are an angel now spreading your wings, and seeing all the beauty that God tells us about heaven. I know that even though you're not with me in body, you will always be with me in spirit. I love and miss you Baby Boy and I know I will see you again in a better place when it's my time to go.
