"I'm sending this letter from Heaven,

just to tell you I'm doing alright...

I'm so sorry for the pain you're all feeling,

But I really did put up a fight..

Our God had different intentions,

There are things that He wants me to do...

But always know deep within your hearts,

I'll always be there with you...

My family is amazing,

I still feel your love here with me...

You really wouldn't feel so sad,

If you could see what I can see...

Have laughs now and then in my name...

Always remember I love you,

God bless till we meet again..."
