    Tammy And Family,
    I Am So Sorry To Hear About Tommy He Was Loved By Many He Would Give You The Shirt Off His Back If You Needed.
    If You Need Any Thing Let Me Know. My Deepest Sympathy To You, Your In My Thoughts And Prayers. Love, Pam

    A Letter From Heaven

    To My Dearest Family,

    Some things I would like to say,

    But first of all, to let you know

    That I arrived ok.

    I’m writing this from Heaven

    Where I dwell with God above,

    here there’s no more tears or sadness

    There is just eternal love.

    Please do not be unhappy

    Just because I’m out of sight.

    Remember that I’m with you

    Every morning, noon, and night.

    That day that 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 so badly

    As part of my big plan.

    There’s so much that we have to do

    To help our mortal man.

    Then God gave me a list of things

    He wished for me to do.

    And foremost on that list of mine

    Is to watch and care for you.

    And I will be beside you

    Every day and week and year.

    And when you’re sad,

    I’m standing there to wipe away the tears.

    And when you lie in bed at night

    The days chore 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 all those loving years,

    Because you’re only human

    They’re 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 rain.

    I wish that I could tell you

    Of all that God has planned,

    But if I were to tell you,

    You would not understand.

    And to my many friends trust,

    God knows what it best.

    I’m still not very far away from you

    I’m just beyond the crest.

    And now I am contented that my life,

    It was worthwhile.

    Knowing as I passed along the way

    I made someone smile.

    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 you feel that gentle breeze

    Or the wind upon your face,

    That’s me giving you a great big hug

    Or just a soft embrace.

    And when it’s time for you to go

    From that body to be free,

    Remember, you’re not going,

    You are coming here to me.

    And I will always love you

    from that land way up above.

    I’ll be in touch again soon,


    Pam Jennings ….Florida…
