Mrs. Acciavatti. ******* I Was Sitting Here In Heaven And Having A Wonderful Day. I Started Thinking About You And All The Things I Didn't Get A Chance To Say. I Don,t Want You To Worry About Me And Please Don't Shed Any Tears. Because I Will Wait For You In Heaven If It Takes 100 Years. Everything I Had On Earth I Have In Heaven Too! My Very First Day Here My Body Became Brand New. It Really Is Pretty Here And I Love My New Home! Although Your Heart Is Broken Because My Body Is Gone. My Love Will Always Be There As You Go Along Your Way. Just Take A Peek Inside Your Heart There Is Where I'll Stay. Know That I Loved My Family And All My Friends Too My Thoughts Will Be With Each Of You Your Whole Life Through! To Mrs. Acciavatti, I saw this poem and thought of you! Mark was truly a kind, caring, loyal friend! A friend who loved his mom to no end! A friend who expressed his dedication and admiration proudly, fondly and often of his beautiful mom! Always eager to converse about you! I am truly amazed to find just so many similar features, not only in appearance but also in personality, between mom and son! Remarkable indeed! I could easily see how he adored YOU!! Such a remarkable, classy, strong, beautiful woman! A sense of comfort radiates from within you as it did from Mark also! It is easy to now see where all Marks wonderful qualities came from! God Bless you! Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers daily! Thank you for such a wonderful son and friend who will be missed dearly by so many! I am always here if needed in anyway! Mark always said I had the gift of gab and I was so positive and comforting in my words. I hope this poem has put at least a small smile on your face! Lots of love and prayers to you and your family! CARA
