When Cliff Sims’s grandmother died, he and his grandfather shared the bittersweet process of sorting her earthly possessions. While looking through an old checkbook, Jimmy ‘Granddaddy ‘Breland found a secret note his beloved wife Billie had left just for him to find.
Cliff posted a picture of the note on Facebook.
The note reads,
Please don’t cry because I died!
Smile because I lived!
Know that I’m in a happy place!
Know that we will meet again!
I’ll see you there!
Charles wrote about his beloved ‘Mimi’ for an editorial published by Yellow Hammer News,
She was an avid note writer. Every photo on the walls of their home is meticulously documented. She wrote down funny things that happened or quotes she wanted to remember, all in the perfect cursive handwriting that could only belong to a school teacher.
We don’t know exactly when she did it, but she left one final note tucked inside her checkbook — but this one wasn’t for her, it was for my Grandaddy, and it perfectly sums up the hope and comfort that comes with knowing you’ll meet again in eternity.
After 60 years of marriage even death could not stop Mimi from sharing her love with Granddaddy.
