A Letter From Heaven

When tomorrow starts without me and I'm not here to see, The sun should rise and you find your eyes 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 loved me as much as I loved you and each time you think of me, I know you'll miss me too. When tomorrow starts without me don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me I'm right there in your heart.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Vansant-Mills Funeral Home Clinton, Missouri.
