    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.

    We are always saddened to see the loss of a loved one, although they are at peace, we still miss them very much. Our prayer is that, “Our Father who art in Heaven” grant your desire to see your loved one again thru the sacrifice and love of His son, "the Resurrection and Everlasting life.” May the "God of all comfort" be with you at this time.
