Close to Heaven

Heaven is not so far away.

She most likely will be with Jesus today.

There’s no longer a need for her to explore.

We wonder if she can hear Heaven roar.


A good, long life of over eighty-five years

Memories, sarcasm, laughter, with a few tears

Children, grandchildren and great-grands

Says she’s ready for Jesus to show her His plans.


Privileged and honored I’ve been welcomed as family.

Married to her only son I am part of their tapestry.

Only God knows when He is truly ready for her.

We do know for certain that King Jesus is near.

My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14:2-4 (NIV)

We love you Mom, aka Babu, aka Barbara, aka beautiful!

Thank you for your prayers during this tender and beautiful transition. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers more than words can convey! You truly bless us greatly.

In His love,

Mark and Missy xo

    So sorry for your loss! Death is never easy and there is nothing anyone can say to ease that pain. The only thing to look forward to is heaven and being reunited with those we love. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Good morning Prince Joe. It will be my honor to tell her you love and are with her. I know she appreciates your greetings very much. May God continue to richly bless you!🤗


  2. This is a beautiful poem to honor the memory of your mother. My 13 year old daughter wrote a similar poem read last July at my father-in-law’s memorial service. There is something so profoundly moving by expressing deep sorrow through poetry. I’m so very sorry for your loss. God bless you. 🌹
