As I entered into Heaven, what a glorious sight to see,
There was Jesus in all His glory, with His arms stretched out for me.

Jesus softly called my name, as those gates flung open wide,
He stood there to greet me, then He welcomed me inside.

Oh, the wonders here in Heaven, as I stand on this Holy sod.
And I'll be here forever, for I've seen the face of God.

Then when it's your turn, to leave that place called earth,
I'll be there to greet you, at your Heavenly rebirth.

I am so saddened to hear this. Linda was amazing. I had the pleasure of having her as my school librarian all through elementary school. She taught me and many others the importance of the written word and how wonderful it is. She has touched many lives and I am proud to say I am one of them. She will be greatly missed and not forgotten.
