What Leanne would want us to know.
A Message From Heaven
Perhaps you weren’t ready yet to have to say good-bye….perhaps you’ve thought of things you wish you’d said---well, so have I. For one thing, I’d have told you not to worry about me…I’m with the Lord in Heaven now---you knew that’s where I’d be. I’m sorry that you’re feeling sad, for I’m so happy now. I’ve asked the Lord to ease the hurt and comfort you somehow. It’s hard at the beginning, but I know you’ll make it through. I hope it helps to know that Dad, Debbie and I will be waiting here for you.
