when I cross over.
Little things to

    Memories you leave behind in the hearts of loved ones and knick-knacks from your earthly home to take with you...are beautiful thoughts expressing your loss of the world you have come to know. But heaven is a paradise we are told. (Jesus told the man next to Him on the cross, Today you will be with me in paradise.) Great expression of your here and now feelings. Thank you, Chris. Perfect 10. (Report) Reply
