Letter From Heaven

To my dearest family:

There are some things I'd 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, there's 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. It's 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 badly, you're part of my plan. There's so much
that we have to 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 day's 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 o'er. I'm closer to you now, than I
ever was before. There are many 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 I'd like it for you too;
That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's 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 him 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 it's time for you to go....
from that body to be free. Remember you're not
going.....you're coming here to me.

~ In Heaven By My Side ~

All these special people
Who died before their time
Are with Me in My heaven
Their hearts are intertwined
These students from Columbine
And all of those who passed
On that violent day below
Are etched in my stained-glass
All the families left behind
Who feel this grief untold
Remember that I love them
They are precious as all gold
I never will forget the pain
They are going through
Your children and your family
Are watching over you
I gently kissed their faces
When they walked into this Light
I greeted them with Angels
Triumphantly and bright
I will care for them forever
You will see them all once more
They are just with me for now until
They meet you at My door
It takes some time to heal your heart
My Arms reach out to you
I just want you to realize
You are always in their view
I love you with all my Heart
Your family I will keep
Forever in the Arm's of Love
In My Heaven they now sleep.

Memorial Service


An estimated 70,000 people attended a memorial service Sunday for the students who were killed or wounded at Columbine High School on Tuesday. Governor Bill Owens, Vice President Al Gore and others delivered tributes to the students and faculty of the school, Gore saying "all of us must change our lives to honor these children, More than ever, I realize every one of us is responsible for all of the children".

The crowd was twice as large as organizers expected. Strangers stood side by side, hugging and crying together and clutching flowers, teddy bears and balloons. 13 white doves were released at the end of the service as the Governor read the names of the 13 victims. Christian entertainers, including Amy Grant, sang at the service, which was held in the parking lot of a movie theater.
