Steve, Heather, Grace & Haley,
My deepest sympathy to you all. I am certain that God had a plan for Paige and He carefully selected her. Know that she is with Him.
I have a poem that is worth sharing.
And if I go,
while you’re still here…
Know that I live on,
vibrating to a different measure
– behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together again,
– both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to its fullest.
And when you need me,
Just whisper my name in your heart,
…I will be there.
The poem is called Ascension. Its author is Colleen Hitchcok
