To all my friends that I leave. Do not be deceived. A new life I have just began. God took me home to be with him and forgave all my sins. This is the place I have always wanted to be. It is the most beautiful place you’ll ever see. I shall miss all of you. But I’ll be so happy here, no pain, no sin, no sorrow, always a beautiful tomorrow. I never knew until – the bugle blew and the trumpet sound. He has walked me through the Valley of the Shadow of Death and I fear no evil, He is with me now. I’m in the House of the Lord now and forever. Written by Fern Jackson.
