The Church bells rang 29 times, so we knew it was final, and the end of the line. Now 29 miners are at Heaven's gate, with coal-silt dirty faces, asking, 'Is it too late?'
When God replied, with half a grin, 'No my children. Come on in.'
They placed their mining lights gently on Heaven's floor, when God said..."Job well done. Leave your boots at the door..."

    I am very sorry, Sue. Very appealing, if somber, image.

    I read about the second explosion this morning, and it broke my heart. I know you had a connection with one of the young men who was trapped in the mine; my heart goes out to you and to all of the families with loved ones who were lost. A beautiful tribute, Sue.
