  1. I love you Mom. I know I should have said it more, I should have been there more. I’m so sorry that I wasn’t. I know in my heart you are in a better place no suffering, no pain, no sadness. I will forever hold you in my heart, I hear you speak to me I know you are OK and I trust you are well taken care of. You have touched so many people more than you could ever imagine. You are truly a loving, genuine, and beautiful person. You truly are the best mother I could have asked for. So you dance and sing and be with our people who have passed before you they welcomed you with open arms I am sure.

    Tell me, what does it look like in heaven?
    Is it peaceful? Is it free like they say?
    Does the sun shine bright forever?
    Have your fears and your pain gone away?
    ‘Cause here on Earth it feels like everything
    Good is missing since you left
    And here on Earth, everything’s different
    There’s an emptiness
    Oh-oh, I
    I hope you’re dancing in the sky
    And I hope you’re singing in the angel’s choir
    And I hope the angels know what they have
    I’ll bet it’s so nice up in Heaven since you arrived
    So tell me, what do you do up in Heaven?
    Are your days filled with love and light?
    Is there music? Is there art and adventure?
    Tell me are you happy? Are you more alive?
