During your journey on your final flight home, white wings will carry you and you will be flown to the pearly gates of Heaven, where they will usher you in to the feet of your Lord, your Savior, and your friend. He will hold you in His arms and the angels will sing as another one of His children is delivered by white wings. Author Julie Johnson
