    My wife and I would like to offer you, your family and your friends our deepest sympathy for your loss. God's plan is never our plan, but we trust that He knows what is best. Take comfort in knowing that your loved one is in the safest place possible, with our Creator. We pray for peace and strength in your time of sorrow.

    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.
