Sally jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon coming out of the
operating room. She said,
"How is my little boy? Is he going to
be OK? When can I see him?"
The Surgeon said, "I'm sorry, we did
all we could."
Sally said, "Why do little children
Doesn't GOD care anymore? GOD, where
were you when my son needed you?" The Surgeon said,
"One of the nurses will be out in a
few minutes to let you spend time with your son before his body is
transported to the university." Sally asked that the nurse stay with
her while she said good-bye to her son. She lovingly ran her fingers
through his thick red curly hair. The nurse said,
"Would you like a lock of his hair?"
Sally nodded yes. The nurse cut a lock of his hair, put it in a
plastic bag, and handed it to Sally. Sally said,
"It was Jimmy's idea to give his body
to the university for study. He said it might help some body else,
and that is what he wanted.
I said 'No' at first, but Jimmy said,
'Mom, I won't be using it after I
die, maybe it will help some other little boy to be able to spend
one more day with his mother."
She continued, "My Jimmy had a heart
of gold, always thinking of someone else and always wanting to help
others if he could."
Sally walked out of the Children's Hospital for the last time now
after spending most of the last 6 months there. She sat the bag,
with Jimmy's things in it, on the seat beside her in the car. The
drive home was hard and it was even harder to go into an empty
house. She took the bag to Jimmy's room and started placing the
model cars and things back in his room, exactly where he had always
kept them. She laid down across his bed and cried herself to sleep
while clutching his pillow. Sally woke up about midnight and saw,
beside her on the bed, a folded letter. She opened the letter.
Dear Mom, I know you're going to miss me, but don't think that I
will ever forget you or stop loving you because I'm not around to
say I LOVE YOU. I'll think of you every day and I'll love you even
more each day. Someday we will see each other again. If you want to
adopt a little boy so you won't be so lonely, he can have my room
and my old stuff to play with. If you decide to get a girl instead,
she probably wouldn't like the same things as us boys do, so you
will have to buy her dolls and stuff girls like.
Don't be sad when you think about me, this is really a great place.
Grandma and Grandpa met me as soon as I got here and showed me
around some, but it will take a long time to see everything here.
The angels are so friendly, I love to watch them fly. Jesus doesn't
look like any of the pictures I saw of Him, but I knew it was Him as
soon as I saw Him. Jesus took me to see GOD! And guess what, Mom? I
got to sit on GOD'S knee and talk to Him like I was somebody
important. I told GOD that wanted to write you a letter and tell you
good-bye and everything, but I knew that wasn't allowed. God handed
me some paper and His own personal pen to write you this letter. I
think Gabriel is the name of the angel who is going to drop this
letter off to you.
God said for me to give you the answer to one of the questions you
asked Him-- Where was He when I needed him? God said, "The same
place He was when Jesus was on the cross. He was right there, as He
always is with all His children. Oh, by the way Mom, nobody else can
see what is written on this paper but you. To everyone else, it
looks like a blank piece of paper. I have to give God His pen back
now, he has some more names to write in the Book Of Life.
Tonight I get to sit at the table with Jesus for Supper. I'm sure
the food will be great. I almost forgot to let you know - Now I
don't hurt anymore, the cancer is all gone. I'm glad because I
couldn't stand that pain anymore and God couldn't stand to see me
suffer the pain either, so He sent The Angel of Mercy to get me.
The Angel said I was Special Delivery!
