As I sit in heaven and watch you every day
I try to let you know with signs I never went away.
I hear you when you’re laughing and watch you as you sleep.
I even place my arms around you to calm you when you weep.
I see you wish the days away begging to have me home.
So try to send signs so you know you’re not alone.
Don’t feel guilty that you have life denied to me.
Heaven is truly beautiful. Just you wait and see.
So live your life and laugh again. Enjoy yourself, be free.
Then I know every breath you take you will be taking one for me.

I have treasured my friends who have stayed by my side throughout my journey. There are no words to express my gratitude for their love and good company and support. Special thanks to Linda Kendrick, Linda Crawley, Edna Holstead, and my lifelong friend Joe McKeown, all my friends at 19 Hamilton Street and Dr. Chayer for his care and compassion.
