~Emmie's 1 year in Heaven mark~



Mama,

I went home to see Jesus, back to that Heavenly place.
He said it was time for me to go, although I knew I'd miss your face.

Don't cry for me now, it's so beautiful here.
I want you to always feel that I am near.

I'm surrounded by angels, family & friends,
God the Father, the Savior, the list never ends.

If you only could see me now. I can run, I can sing,
Oh the sweet joy that only Heaven could bring.

I miss you so much, but I visit you often.
Just close your eyes & I'll whisper, the pain I will soften.

Thank you for giving me my earthly body while there,
& always brushing my long brunette hair.

You were the best Mom I could ever have had
Now take of yourself, Ava, Elsie, Ivan & Dad.

I'll see you sooner than you probably think
The Savior comes quickly, so don't you dare blink.

I love you so much & I want you to know
That I still see Strawberry Shortcake up here too...on the front row. ;)

~Emmie
