     Written with love by her family.

Dear Family, I’m writing this letter
To tell you I’m safely at Home
My earthly experience of trials and learning
Prepared me to rest near the Throne
When I saw the Golden Gates of this City
My loved ones all met me with smiles
I had no desire to look back where I’d been
Or to measure the time or the miles
There’s no pain allowed in my new home
No tears are permitted to fall
We’re busy enjoying the beauty and love
We don’t need telephones to call
Oh, I’ve never seen such beautiful roses
In all my long years of earthly life
They’re growing like grass in this wonderful place
There’s not one weed to pull in sight
You should see the dahlias and lilies
Their blossoms seem never to fade
They’re watered and fed by the Master of Gardens
While I just rest here in the shade
Just be patient, my friends and my loved ones
It’s a trip well worth waiting for
You’ll know how I feel and the joy in my heart
Just as soon as you enter the door
Oh, yes, I have met Dad and Mother
And visited all those we love
We’ve all just been waiting and hoping to see
You enter your new Home Above.
