"Heaven called the other day I didn't think it right, HE bent &whispered in his  ear "Come home with me tonight". A tear then fell from my eye HE touched & sent it thru the sky, "Please my child do not cry for he is HOME with ME & that is why. Through your pain U must remain strong & steadfast for thee, for 1 day soon you too shall take that lovely walk with Me." Heavens door shall never close on memories of the heart it lets U know FOREVER that no way are U apart. His love for U will NEVER change or yours for him that's true  & GOD has made a promise by the words he left with you. So cry your tears, have your fears, your & sorrow  your pain but when that's done you'll see the sun you'll look & call his name. You'll see that smile, you'll take his hand & you'll know that it's all so TRUE.......For just as God has promised---your life on earth is through & just as he has told U he's now come back for you. Take his hand & on your walk look gently thru the light, for also as he promised is ETERNIAL delight.   I wrote this for U 4 years ago & I still wait & believe it WILL happen.  Merry Christmas my precious Johnny."

"Glad you didn't look for a pretty face, it turned old one day, didn't look for soft skin, for one day it wrinkled, instead my precious look for a LOYAL HEART that has missed you EVERY day for the past 5 years and will love you FOREVER.
