LuJean’s Post on Facebook:
A few days ago, Don’s eyes seemed fixed on something far away from those of us in the room. A smile that seemed to tickle the corners of his mouth slowly brightened across his face as he began to whisper so softly I had to place my ear at the opening of his mouth.
“It is real,” he whispered. “It is really, really real. Heaven is real.”
“Do you see heaven?” I gently asked. “Yes,” He whispered…. “It is so beautiful. I want to go.”
“Yes, darling,” I replied.
“But, I,want YOU to come with me,” he whispered.
“I will be okay. You go first. I will be coming before long,” I assured him.
At 12:24 this noon time,he did just that. He left his body of pain and went on alone into that beautiful city where there is no more pain, no more sorrow, or suffering.
“To God be the glory. Great things He hath done.
So loved He the world that He gave us his Son, Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life gate that all may go in.
Great things He hath taught us; great things He hath done
And great our rejoicing through Jesus, the Son.
But purer and higher and greater will be
Our wonder, our transport when Jesus we see.”
Goodbye, my love, I will see you again before long.
