A message from Jean:
Please don’t cry for me, for I am fine.
I met with Jesus and He served me wine!
I was so relieved to fill my lungs with air,
I felt free and happy, until I looked down there.
I saw you all, with heads bowed and tears in eyes,
My heart ached for you and I, too, cried.
I sat with each of you and I held your hand,
But now I am ready to lay somewhere in the sand.
I am free now; my body gives me no pain.
Even though my body is gone, my love for you remains.
And yes, I will save a spot for you!
