I wanted to write you this letter to explain. Heaven is everything you'd want it to be, and so much more.
The weather is perfect! It's sunny, but not too sunny. When it rains, it is the kind of rain that cleanses. Even the snow doesn't feel cold, but it makes great snowballs!
I've had my eye on you and your brothers all these years. I am really proud how you all turned out (your Grandma is watching over my shoulder as I write this, she said to tell you 'hi'). I'm sorry that you married a couple of losers, but really glad that you finally met a good one. You never were a quitter.
I am especially tickled by the grandkids and great grandkids...how I wish I was there to have them sit in my lap and read to them. Don't be sad, I have seen how well they are all loved and cared for - I couldn't have done a better job.
When you talk to your mom at the nursing home, tell her not to get in a big hurry to join me - I'm enjoying the quiet (you better NOT tell her that! lol).
I know that her Alzheimer's is progressing, and she can't remember that I came here in 1983. It's sad to watch her slip away like that. I know she can be real happy here, I just hope that she won't embarrass me by yelling, like she used to.
June, you always were a good daughter. I miss you, but don't expect to spend time with you for many years.
Thanks for telling the kids and grandkids about me - and you're right, if I were there, I'd have fallen in love with every one of them.
I'm going to close by saying the last thing I said to you before I came here - I love you, June. Please don't worry so much.
June Freaking Cleaver
