In Loving MemoryBarbara C. Clements11/5/56-8/24/14I just wanted to tell you I made it home.Everything is so pretty here, so white, so fresh, so new. I wish you could close your eyes, and you could see it too. Please try not to be sad for me. Try to understand. God is taking care of me, I'm in the shelter of his hands. Here there is no sadness, no pain, no sorrow. Here there is no crying, I'll never hurt again. Here it is so peaceful, when all the angels sing. I really have to go for now..I've just got to try my wings. Loving and Missing you always,Mike, Mikel, and Holly
