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.
