Saying Goodbye

One year ago, July 8, 2011, at 10:00 PM, Aimee completed her long transition to citizenship in heaven.  I have a treasured memory that needs retelling.  During the afternoon, I was sitting with Aimee,  loving her, doing some crying and some praying, trying to approach what she had claimed repeatedly, “Perfect peace.”  There had been little or no response from her.   I told her goodbye and that I loved her with all my heart.  After considerable time, she said, most unexpectedly and audibly, “I love you, Daddy.”  I don’t really know, but I like to think it was the last thing she said.  It’s a truly precious memory.
