A Letter from Heaven 

When tomorrow starts without me
and I’m not there to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes,
all filled with tears for me.

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
the way you did today
While thinking of the many things
we didn’t get to say.

I know how much you love me
as much as I love you,
And each time you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too.

So when tomorrow starts without me,
don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I’ll be right there in your heart. 

Our Sincere Condolences

I am so sorry to hear about Al. The times we had at all those hockey games are very much cherished. His laugh and the genuine heart he had will be greatly missed.
