Letter to Heaven

If I could write a letter to Heaven; I would address it to my son Raymond Marc Zachry who is the subject of this blog.

Wish the mail could deliver to Heaven

Wish the mail could deliver to Heaven

I would ask if he has seen his Grandmother and Grandfather Ratledge.  Granddad will have a birthday next week if he was still here on earth.

How about Uncle Al, Alvin Ratledge, your favorite uncle?  He would also be there among the many Ratledge’s . There must be a grand family reunion.  Aunt Bert, Alberta ‘Bert’ Giles; she and Uncle Jay Giles always loved the gathering of the Ratledge clan in North Carolina each year.

Heaven gained a bright star son when you arrived on September 25, 2007. We are still searching for the source of the poison that caused your death.

Life here is not the same without your smile and loving greetings.  How I would love to receive another of your phone calls… got cell phones in Heaven?

  1. I have written letters to those who have died for whom I was unable to make amends for wrong doing I may have done to them. It is all we can do.



  2. My dear friend, I weep with you. I often wonder whether our children have bumped into one another in Heaven? Much love and hugs



  3. Our Creator calls from this earth only those who are lovable in His Scheme of Things. They are required in the Heaven since they are also assigned some more important functions there than on this earth.

    That Supreme Secret is only known to HIM.



    • Your words make the transition to Heaven more understandable, but I still miss my loved ones, especially my son.



      • Thy missing the departed loved,
        Ones is beyond any iota of doubt,
        But the one who is born here on this earth,
        Has to depart,
        Now, or ever,
        Timing is fixed by our Lord over there,
        We humans just remember our departed ones,
        Forgetting them is synonymous,
        With forgetting our own self,

        Thy son – ye held most dear,
        Who hath left thee,
        And thy loved ones,
        Surely is a feeling,
        Which a mom’s heart can only feel,
        We in the periphery,
        Can still say,
        Thy son is dear to Him,
        And He being His Father Supreme,
        Knows the best of all the things to come.



  4. Reblogged this on The Matter of Life and Death and commented:
    Wouldn’t it be grand if we could correspond with our loved ones who have gone on to Heaven?



    • Those who are gone on to the Heaven,
      Enjoy all the facilities provided by our Creator,
      For He knows for sure,
      What is good and bad for the soul,
      At His abode,

      If at all we could correspond,
      With our loved,
      Those loved ones would correspond,
      My association with my Creator is cent percent,
      And further say with certainty,
      Heaven in His Presence,
      Bestows him the soul,
      Total attachment with Him,
      Morn, even, and every time.

      So, O Man,
      Let the departed ones,
      Remain entrenched with the Lord Supreme,
      Till He wants their company.
