  • I can not begin to comprehend that you are gone…I have thought about a conversation we had a few years ago about Heaven. You asked me if I believed in it…I said “yes” and you asked me what I thought heaven was like…
    everything you want it to be…I asked you if you believed in it…you said you did but had a hard time believing in something that noone has ever came back to prove it exists…you asked me how i could believe in something that couldn’t physically be proven…I told you I have to have faith to believe in something so much bigger then this life…its why its called faith. You were still skeptical and I will never forget the look on your beautiful face…I told you that we would agree that who ever went first would send the other a sign….I saw your unique and beautiful simple yet unmistakable sign….
    I was looking over the water and I saw a small section of a rainbow thru the clouds…I never knew a rainbow appeared on a 60` day with a bright blue sky all day long…I know you are amazed kiddo…cant wait til I see for myself…tell Buddles hi and keep an eye on your Nammy & Pops…
