Ginnie and family, Someone sent this poem to me when my brother passed away and it was comforting to me. I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. My heart and prayers goes out to you and your family during this difficult time. To My Dearest Family To my dearest family, some things Id like to say but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay. Im writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above. Here, there are no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love. Please do not be unhappy just because Im out of sight. Remember that Im 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 He said, I welcome you. Its good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone. As for your dearest family, theyll be here later on. I need you here badly; youre part of my plan. Theres so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man. God gave me a list of things that 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 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 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 what God has planned. But if I were to tell you, you wouldnt understand. But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over, Im closer to you now, than I ever was before. There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb; but together we can do it by taking one day at a time. It was always my philosophy and Id like it for you too that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you. If you can help somebody whos in sorrow and pain, then you can say to God at nightMy day was not in vain. And now I am contented.that my life has been worthwhile, knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile. So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low, just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go. When youre walking down the street, and youve got me on your mind; Im walking in your footsteps only half a step behind. And when its time for you to go. from that body to be free, remember youre not going..youre coming here to me. Your Friend, June
