Heaven's Gate
By Joyce C. Lock

Perhaps the greatest of all miracles of healing
is when we reach our eternal destination ...
where the only tears are of those left behind.

May we embrace and comfort each other in our time of loss.
But, may our lasting memory be a Spiritual celebration -
envisioning our loved one, walking through Heaven's gate.

Were they able to speak today,
I suspect our loved one would say,
"In deepest sympathy ... to those on the other side."
