"One quiet night the angels can and took you far away, but in the stillness of the night I could almost hear him say: Dear Children, grandchildren, family and friends, I will miss you.
You mean so much to me, but Jesus called me to His side in Heaven, I will be. A place of God's great beauty. No tears or earthly cares. Only peace and joy forever. and love beyond compared.
So, remember all the good times. Don't think about the sad... Treasure all the special moments through the years we've always had. And if you trust in Jesus, I can promise this and more...
You will get a hug from me someday in Heaven as I greet you at Heaven's door."
