Sally jumped up as soon as she saw the Surgeon come out of the
operating room. She said: "How is my little boy? Is he going to be O.K.?
When can I see him?"
The Surgeon said, "I'm sorry, we did all we could." Sally said, "Why
do little children get cancer, doesn't GOD care any more?
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's remains before it's transported to the
university". Sally asked that the nurse stay with her while she
said Good-bye to her son.
Sally 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 and 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 somebody else," and that is what he
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".
Sally said, "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 of 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 always kept them.
She laid down across his bed and cried herself to sleep holding his
Sally woke up about midnight and laying beside of her on the bed, was
a letter folded up. She opened the letter, it said:
I know your 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 mom and I'll love you even more each
Some day 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
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 I wanted to write you a
letter and tell you Good-bye and everything, but I knew that
God handed me some paper and His own personal pen to write you this
letter with. I think Gabriel is the name of the angel that 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 about. 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!

God & Jesus & Me.
