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. Here I dwell with God above. Here, there's no more tears of sadness, here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight. Remember that I'm 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". "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 badly; you're part of my plan. There's 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 that 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 some tears. But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve some 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 would not understand. One thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over, I'm closer to you now than ever before. There are so 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 I'd like it for you too... That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you. If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain, then you can say to God at night.. "My 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 them up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind--- I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind. And when it's time for you to go.. from that body to be free, Remember you're not going.. you're coming home to me!!!!!!!
Always your loving wife, mum, nanny & sister

If tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not there to see, If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today, While thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say. I know how much you love me…as much as I love you, And each time that you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too; But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand, And said my place was ready in heaven far above, And that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye, For all my life, I’d always thought, I didn’t want to die. I had so much to live for, so much left yet to do, It seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad, I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had. If I could relive yesterday just even for a while, I’d say good-bye and kiss you, and maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized that this could never be, For emptiness and memories would take the place of me. And when I thought of worldly thing I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you, and when I did my heart was filled with sorrow. But when I walked through heaven’s gates I felt so much at home. When God looked down and smiled at me from His great golden throne, He said, “This is eternity and all I’ve promised you.. Today your life on earth is past but here life starts anew. I promise no tomorrow but today will always last, And since each day’s the same way there’s no longing for the past. You have been so faithful, so trusting and so true. Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn’t do. But you have been forgiven and now at last you’re free. So won’t you come and take my hand and share my life with me? “ So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart, For every time you think of me, I’m right here, in your heart.
KEEP MY MEMORY
Keep My Memory
Keep my memory with you As memories never die I will be there with you When you look across the sky I will be there in the clouds In the birds that fill the air In the beauty of a fragrant rose You will find my memory there You will feel me in the tenderness Of a baby's gentle touch You will hear me if you listen In the twilight's gentle hush When your hearts are heavy And you feel that you are alone Just reach down deep inside of you For your heart is now my home I will always be with you I will never go away For I will live on in your hearts Forever and a day
