    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.

    To your entire family I offer my sincere condolence and deepest sympathy. Allow the fond memories and cherished times you shared to bring warmth to your hearts. While no words can erase the pain you are feeling at this time. Know that God (Psalm 83:18) has given us hope

    The constitution doesnít grant power, it keeps the government off our backs.
