"I am now in Heaven, the gates are open wide, and now I have the privilege of walking by His side. The angel choir is singing, and the music is so sweet; I'll join them, just as soon, as I have worshipped at His feet.
 
I am now in Heaven, the blood washed throng is here, I recognize a lot of them, there is not a single tear.  Here's joy beyond description, and reunion by the score; there will be no separation, we will be here for ever more."
 
In loving memory,
The family
