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.

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. Our handful.
Still the wind beneath my wings Mom. Going to put more pics in this year . Just some up to date of the family. Love and miss you xxx

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
