I found this poem I thought was so pretty.

I'll Just Wait n Heaven

I'll just wait in Heaven
Til we meet again.
I know you miss me
Just remember I am free.
Free from pain & sorrow
God's love fills each tomorrow.
My love's in your heart,
We will never be apart.
Cherish the love we share,
Remember how much I care.
Someday we'll be together,
Because love lives forever.
So I'll just wait in Heaven
Til we meet again.

My deepest sympathy and thoughts and prayers are with all of you. He was a sweet man.
