Favorite verse:

If It proves to be his will that I am first to go, and somehow I’ve a feeling’ it will be.

When it comes your time to travel likewise, don’t feel lost for I will be the first one you will see.

I’ll be waiting on the far side banks of Jordan. I’ll be sitting drawing pictures in the sand.

And when I see you coming, I will rise up with the shout, and come running through the shallow waters reaching for your hand
