SAFELY HOME

I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.

Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! But Jesus’ love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.

And He came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus’ arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth’s shadows,
Pray to trust our Father’s Will.

There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus’ land.

When the work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!

I will always remember Ed's smile and his sense of humor. He was always so much fun and he had a gift for making everyone laugh. I still remember when I was a kid and we were talking about faith and history, and he was so excited, he turned around to go into the bookstore and buy me a book on the history of Catholic saints. You and your family blessed my life so much. Hugs, and more hugs, and unending prayers lifting you all up. May Jesus hold you all ever closer, ever deeper at this time. With deepest love and affection,
Aeli
