Will You Be My Valentine?

Skyler James was born on July 1, 2016. He was a beautiful baby boy with blue eyes and brown hair. Skyler was loved by everyone.  On July 29,2016, Skyler died. It was a day that our hearts broke into a million pieces. I want Skyler to know he will always be very important to everyone who loved him.  So, I look up to Heaven and ask, ” Skyler, will you be my Valentine?”

Dear Skyler,

How are you?  We miss you very much and hope you are happy in Heaven. It snowed a few days ago and it was very cold. I saw a little boy building a snowman. He was laughing and having a really good time. Does it snow in Heaven? Do you make snow angels?

February is one of my favorite months. I love Valentine’s Day!  It is a day when we tell our loved ones how much they mean to us. Children in school make little pouches or decorate a small box with hearts and cupids. Then on Valentine’s Day, they bring a card for each boy and girl and their teachers. They put the cards in the right boxes and wait until it is time to celebrate. There is a lot of giggling as they read each card.  You would love it!

Skyler, I want to ask you a question, ” Do you know what love is?”  You were just a little baby when you took your journey to Heaven.  When I think of love, I think of you and all the children in Heaven. When I held you, your eyes met mine and I felt a warmth in my heart that I still feel today. That warmth is love.  I can only imagine that every parent, grandparent or great-grandparent feels that warm feeling. A warmth that continues to grow even when our loved ones live in Heaven.  Although I cannot send a card to Heaven, I can look up and whisper, ” I love you. Will you be my Valentine?”   Love, Gigi

Dear Gigi,

I am doing really well in Heaven.  I miss you too, but I visit you a lot.  Today, I sat on one of the biggest clouds and waved down to all of you. Please tell my family to look up and wave back to me. Tell Preston, I miss him a lot and I am always with him. Gigi, Heaven is beautiful. God can do anything. God can create a rainy day, a sunny day, a warm day, and even a snowy day. He wants us to experience all things that all children like to do. Even building a snowman and having a snowball fight.  But the most fun is when we make snow angels.  God invites all the Angels to watch us. First, God makes it snow, then we lie down and wave our arms.  The Angels laugh and laugh.  It is funny, though when we get back up, each one of our snow angels always has a halo. Those Angels love to have fun! The snow looked pretty on all the flowers in Heaven.   Gigi, Yes, I will be your Valentine. My heart is filled with love for you and my family. And do you know what Gigi? The warmth your heart feels for me is exactly what I feel for you. Heaven is warmth. There is love everywhere. God is love, I can see His love. It floats from His heart to ours. Tell everyone, Gigi, that love can fix anything. Tell them that we are all connected and that God loves everyone.  Oh, I have a new pet; a beautiful green turtle named Ralph. I met him at the Rainbow Bridge.  Gigi, every day is Valentine’s Day in Heaven. Love Skyler
