The tears ran down his precious little face as he said to me "But Mommy, will Elmo go up in Heaven too? My Elmo knows about Jesus, but I don't think he has a heart, not a real one. Can I just bring him to Heaven?" As the tears ran down my face I responded with "Well babe, you sure can talk to Jesus about that!" So he did. "Dear Jesus, please can I bring Elmo to heaven with me and all my dogs and my bear too? Please Jesus, so that I won't grow up, I want to be a kid forever so I don't have to leave my Mom and Dad. Please let my Mommy and Daddy live to be 100 million 72 years old. Amen."
Sleep well my sweet Shane and Elmo too!
