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 all right? When can I see him?"

The surgeon said, "I'm sorry. We did all we could, but your boy didn't make it."

Sally said, "Why do little children get cancer? Doesn't God care any more? Where were you, God, when my son needed you?"

The surgeon asked, "Would you like some time alone with your son? One of the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he's transported to the university."

Sally asked the nurse to stay with her while she said good-bye to son. She ran her fingers lovingly through his thick red curly hair.

"Would you like a lock of his hair?" the nurse asked.

Sally nodded yes. The nurse cut a lock of the boy's hair, put it in a plastic bag and handed it to Sally. The mother said, "It was Jimmy's idea to donate his body to the University for Study. He said it might help somebody else. "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 spend one more day with his Mom." She went on, "My Jimmy had a heart of gol00000000000000000d. Always thinking of someone else. Always wanting to help others if he could."

Sally walked out of Children's mercy Hospital for the last time, after spending most of the last six months there. She put the bag with Jimmy's belongings on the seat beside her in the car. The drive home was difficult. It was even harder to enter the empty house. She carried Jimmy's belongings, and the plastic bag with the lock of his hair to her son's room. She started placing the model cars and other personal things back in his room exactly where he had always kept them. She laid down across his bed and, hugging his pillow, cried herself to sleep.

It was around midnight when Sally awoke. Laying beside her on the bed was a folded letter. The letter said:

"Dear Mom, I know you're going to miss me; but don't think that I will ever forget you, or stop loving you, just 'cause I'm not around to say I LOVE YOU. I will always love you, Mom, even more with each day. Someday we will see each other again. Until then, if you want to adopt a little boy so you won't be so lonely, that's okay with me. He can have my room and old stuff to play with. But, if you decide to get a girl instead, she probably wouldn't like the same things us boys do. You'll have to buy her dolls and stuff girls like, you know. Don't be sad thinking about me. This really is a neat 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. The angels are so cool. I love to watch them fly. And, you know what? Jesus doesn't look like any of his pictures. Yet, when I saw Him, I knew it was Him. Jesus himself 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. That's when I told Him that I wanted to write you a letter, to tell you good-bye and everything. But I already knew that wasn't allowed. Well, you know what Mom? 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 He was in the same place with me, as when His son Jesus was on the cross. He was right there, as He always is with all His children.

Oh, by the way, Mom, no one else can see what I've written except you. To everyone else this is just a blank piece of paper. Isn't that cool? I have to give God His pen back now. He needs it to write some more names 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.

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you. 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 hurt so much, either. That's when He sent The Angel of Mercy to come get me. The Angel said I was a Special Delivery! How about that?

Signed with Love from God, Jesus & Me.

PBG, thanks for posting this. I have read it many times but I always appreciate with I read it again. Losing a child, regardless of their age when you lose them is the hardest thing a parent can go through. Mine was 27 when I lost her, along with her 3 children of 8, 6, & 15 months. It is hard to understand God's plan for things but I know I will see them again & something that the minister said regarding my grand daughter sticks with me. She didn't get a chance to bloom on this side but she will bloom in heaven. Every time I see a rose I think of her.
God's blessings on each of you that has lost a child or a grandchild.

Dear PBG.......

It took years for me to allow myself any type of good feeling after I lost my first born daughter. I have seen writings like these and I used to think,
"How do the heck do those people know what it's like to lose a child?"

All the time, just not allowing myself to feel good and let God take care of things. It took time, and now I understand. I learned what true love is. I learned forgiveness as the Mother in the story did, and I was eventually able to ask God to forgive me for doubting his work.

A more peaceful existance did come to me. I pray for those friends from here on BK that have lost loved ones long ago, and recently, that this peace comes to them quickly.

I just wish I had a friend that sent this to me earlier on, and I wish I could have accepted it and understood it. Maybe it would have relieved some of the pain.

Thank you.

Dear Spadoman you are VERY welcome honey... No I dont understand how it feels to lose a child. But my 17 yr old daughter sent this to me and thought I would post it.. I truly wish everyone who has endured the pain of losing a child or even someone close to you from cancer (my stepdad awhile back ago) will let their memories live on 4ever in your heart.. I know I do and every Jan 7th is a very hard day for me but know in MY HEART OF HEARTS that he is in a MUCH BETTER place... May God bless you and everyone else who has had to deal with that.. PEACE LOVE PRINCESS!!!!!!!!
