To my dear Sarah, I knew you for a brief time but I will miss you until we meet again. Jehovah, God promised us paradise in the new system and He does not lie . I still pray for the patience to wait until that day, we can share some scrapple, blueberry toast and coffee. For those who wonder who Jehovah is, pick up your Bible and explore.
