Jose G. Reyes


   Children, If you could see where I have gone, Had made the trip with me, You’d know I didn't go alone, The Savior went with me. When I awoke, He stood at my side, and reaching down his hand, Said, “Hurry Joe, You’re going Home, To a grand and glorious land. Don’t worry over those you love, For I am with them too, And don’t you know with you at Home They’ll long to be there too?”
