To The Family of Carol,

If I could write from Heaven,
this is what I'd say,
Please don't miss me too much,
I'm with you throughout your day.
You may not see or hear me,
but if you're quiet and still,
You may just feel my presence;
because, in Heaven, there is free will.
Don't worry for the day,it will
come and go as planned,
Enjoy each moment you are given,
keep worry from your hand.
Keep sorrow to a minimum;
For if Heaven you could see,
You'd know I'm safe and HAPPY,
I did not cease to be.
Moments in time are brief,
until we'll be together again,
as Eternity Lasts FOREVER,
our lives, they have no End.
Deepest Sympathy,

Sue Blessing
