The final act of love in forgiveness...
My prayer for you is that God welcomed you with open arms and you were reunited with Grandma, Great-Grandma & Grandpa, Johnny, your father, everyone who welcomed you into this world. My prayer for you is that as you were passing from this life to the next, that you were able to visit each one of your children and find peace in your heart. My prayer is that you were embraced as you entered the gates of heaven and that all you felt was love. You're now able to be part of everyone's lives and watch from above, no hurt, no pain, just peace. You have a clean slate now, this is your chance to be the person you were always meant to be. I hope you're able to see what great adults we all turned out to be and feel nothing but peace. Forgiveness is powerful, rest easy, Joe.
