A Letter from Evan
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say
But first of all, to let you know, I arrived okay.
Obituaries from page 63
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 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 rai
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 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 in 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
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.
