“My name is Shelia Smith. I just want you to know that I have moved on. Don’t cry for me because I was received by Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior. My new home is ready and waiting for me. It is an awesome sight – my view is the crystal water and streets of gold. I can’t talk about it too much because I want you to see it one day for yourself. There is no sun or moon as the love of God is our light. The only emotion here is happiness. I don’t feel pain, I no longer cry, my body is new and that’s why I must say good bye.”
