A Letter From Heaven A Letter From Heaven - Ruth Ann Mahaffey To my dearest family, some things Id 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, theres 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 am 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. Its 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 so badly, you are part of my plan. There is so much that we can do, to help our mortal man. God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do. And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you. And when you lie in bed at night the days 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 you tears. But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain. Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain. I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned. If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand. But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over. I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before. There are 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 Id like it for you too; That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you. If you can help somebody who is 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 was 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 its time for you to go...from that body to be free. Remember you're not going...you're coming here to me. Ruth Ann Mahaffey
I can't believe I hadn't put this on before. These are comforting words, which are also on the wall of my bedside
It's been just gone 5 years Mom; so much has happened. You, the family and friends must be chucking eggs down at Villa right now, the mess we are in, eh! Still Holtenders in the sky forever. I know Gene is with you now. You arranged for the letter to arrive on your birthday last year just so we knew you were all reunited. I know you watch over us so you know everything going on Mom. The baby boy you came up firstly to see grow up is 31 now Mom. How you would love Caroline ihs fiancée. How you would be looking forward to the wedding just as you did David & I. A busy year coming up. Oh it's at times like this I especially miss you. You would love to see where Damo is now, with his life and how well he has done, as have they all have. Even Dec. LOL.

It's a year to this date since you past Mom. Where has the time gone. It's been a hard week and a roller coaster yet so many spiritual moments again you and Papa God have supplied to let us know you are O.K and you are still with us. Thank you Mom and Papa God for our Christmas present. It was beautiful amazing and awesome.As ever Mom in the year you have let us know you are still around with those little moments however the one you gave us yesterday for the day one year a go was awesome Mom. When we received the parcel and were like uh what's this and we opened it to see the orchid, the lights for our garden and the stocking full of decorations it was oh lovely now who has sent us this. We rung the company to find out as you know Mom and papa God that we should never have received the parcel has it wasn't ordered for us. The office documents said a name and addy nothing to do with us and when they had fed the order into the system a system error had occurred and had changed the name and address to ours. We had never even shopped with them. Then we knew just as we did last year when you past during that week and on the day. it was you and papa saying Happy Christmas Carol David and Grandchildren. The tears came with joy and amazement. Thank you Mom and Papa God. system error just another name for you both. Love you Mom. Go and dance tonight with Doreen. I know you know I am safe and dealing. Thank you Mom for all you did and still do. Your loving wild Daughter who misses you very much. Happy Christmas Mom and papa God.Love Carol. P.S I know you know however it was good to talk with Gene too yesterday and we will go to see her when we go down VP next.x

Dear Mom. How can it be 3 years. Some days it seems so long ago, yet others like yesterday, when you passed to eternity shore with Doreen back into the loving arms of Jesus to your family. Life has moved on yet I know in spirit your still with us, still watching over us. I know how much you will have enjoyed certain events,like seeing Damo graduation with Caroline. You would love Caroline, I know and know you do. J & Darcy so good and happy, I know you too are happy for them and smiling down from heaven over them. Dec well what can I say :0 ) just our Dec boy, who is a day at a time alot better than he has been. Christy 17 now. How can we not think of him and not think of the commotion in hospital when he was born, with you under the surgeon knife and me in labour. What a stir we caused. Life was never without events eh! Me & David, we plod along. How you adored and still do David. There is a place missing in our family at the table, I know you still spiritually fill, but oh Mom at times my heart is heavier than others. You were the wind beneath our wings and still are. Love and miss you Mom as forever and always. How can I not think about you, you all in memories, walk down to Villa Park (sort these boys out Mom ;o ) ) Enjoy dancing on the fluffy clouds away and for eternity. You are with us everywhere we go and are.
