“Remember me when you hear the wind blow. I am with God, I need you to know, He called my name and I went to see. If the voice I heard was speaking to me. He took my hand, we walked along the road to Heaven, where I belong. The Angels sang so sweet and clear. They sang of love and that Jesus is near. I felt His touch. I saw His face, I knew in an instant, I was in His grace. He spoke to me, I heard Him say you are home now child, you have found your way. So remember me when you hear the wind blow. I am home now with God. I need you to know” (Monaco T.,2015).
