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?'
surgeon said, 'I'm sorry. We did all we could, but your boy
didn't make it.'
said, 'Why do little children get cancer? Doesn't God care
any more? Where were you, God, when my son needed you?'
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.'
asked the nurse to stay with her while she said goodbye to
her 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.
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 gold. Always thinking of someone else. Always
wanting to help others if he could.'
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
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.
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
was around midnight when Sally awoke. Lying beside her on the
bed was a folded letter. The letter said:
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
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.
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
when I told Him that I wanted to write you a letter, to tell
you goodbye 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.
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.
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?
with Love from God, Jesus & Me.
