 GRANDPA
MY GRANDPA ONCE TOLD ME OF A
PLACE, WITH STREETS OF GOLD
 AND PEARLY GATES......
A PLACE FAR ABOVE WHERE THE STARS AWAIT...
 ANGLES WITH WINGS,ANGLES THAT SING,
WITH THERE'S NO MORE SICKNESS,
 NO MORE PAIN, ITS ALL WASHED
AWAY IN A CLEANSING RAIN,
 A PLACE WHERE YOU ARE FORGIVEN
SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN,,,,,
 THIS FAR AWAY PLACE HE SAID
"IS CALLED HEAVEN"....
AS HE HELD ME ON HIS SHOULDERS I
 REACHED FOR THE SKY....
PRETENDING I WAS A BIRD THAT COULD
 FLY....
"HOW DO I GET THERE" I ASKED, HE
 REPLIED......
"SAY YOUR PRAYERS WHEN YOU GO TO BED"
 "DON'T ALLOW ANY BAD TO CONTROL YOUR HEAD"
"ASK FOR FORGIVENESS TO STAY AHEAD"
 "BELIEVE IN HIM,AND HIS WORDS HE SAID"
"PRAY FOR YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS"
 "GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES AND MAKE A MENDS."
HE SAID,"HAVE FAITH IN THE LORD, AND YOUR SELF'
  GRANDPA,I ASKED, "WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN I GO?"
HE ANSWERED AND SAID "WHEN YOUR TIME COMES FOR
 ETERNAL REST, ALL OF YOUR BURDENS SHALL BE
LIFTED FROM YOUR CHEST." "CLOSE YOUR EYES AND GO TO
 SLEEP." PRAY THE LORD YOUR SOUL TO KEEP."
THEN HE SAID,"YOUR SOUL WILL FLY LIKE A BIRD IN
 THE SKY, TO THAT SPECIAL PLACE IN HEAVEN WHERE
THE ANGLES FLY....."
 SO I SAY MY PRAYERS EVERY DAY AND NIGHT.. LISTEN TO
THE WORDS MY GRANDPA SAID......EVERY NIGHT
 WHEN I GO TO BED...I HEAR THE WORDS HE SPOKE IN MY HEAD...
HIS NAME IS ...ROBERT LETOURNEAU..A MAN OF THE LORD..
 HE IS THERE NOW, AND HIS WORDS ARE HERD..
                                    

                   WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL MY GRANDFATHER
                   HELD ME ON HIS SHOULDERS AND TOLD ME TO REACH
                   FOR THE MOON...
                                IN LOVING MEMORY OF;
                                ROBERT R. LETOURNEAU
                           BORN 11-18-1933 DIED 7-13-2004
