Kitten asked that the following words be given with her obituary:


To my dearest family


some things I'd like to say 


but first of all to let you know 


That I arrived O.K.




I'm writing this from Heaven


Where I dwell with God above,


where there's no more tears or sadness


there is just eternal love




Please do not be unhappy


Just because I'm out of sight


Remeber that I'm with you


Every morning, noon and night




That day I had to leave you


When my life on Earth was through


God picked me up and hugged mean


and he said I welcome you.




It's good to have you back again


You were missed while you were gone,


as for your dearest family


they'll be here later on




I need you here so badly


as part of my big plan,


there's so much that we have to do


to help our mortal man.




Then God gave me a list of things


He wished for me to do


and foremost on that list of mine


is to watch and care for you




And I will be beside you


Every day, week and year


and when your sad I'm standying here


to wipe away the tears.




And when you lie in bed at night


the day chores put to flight,


God and I are closer to you


in the middle of the night.




When you think of my life on earth and


all those living years


because you're only human


they are bound to bring you tears




But do not be afraid to cry


it does relieve the pain


remember therfe would be no flowers


unless there was some rain.




I wish that I could tell you


Of all that God has planned,


but if I were to tell you,


you wouldn't understand.




But one thing is for certain


thought my life on earth is over,


I am closer to you now


than I ever was before.




And to my very many friends


trust God knows what is best


I'm still not far away from you


I'm just beyond the crest.




There are rock roads ahead of you


and many hills to climb


but together we can do it,


taking one day at a time.




I was alwasys my philosophy


and I'd like it for you too,


that as you give unto the world


so the world will give to you.




If you can help somebody


who's in sorrow or in pain,


then you can say to God at night


my day was not in vain.




And now I' am contented


That my life it was worthwhile,


knowing as I passed along the way


I made somebody smile.




But if you meet somebody


who is down and feeling low,


just lend a hand to pick them up


as on your way you go.




When you are walking down the street


and you've go me on your mind,


I'm walking in your footsteps


only half a step behind.




And when you feel a gentle breeze


or the wind upon your face,


that's me giving you a great big hug


or just a soft embrace.




And when it's time for you to go


from that body to be free,


remember that you are not going


you are coming here to me.




And I will always love you


from that land way up above,


we will be in touch again soon.


P.S. God sends His love.
