We wait here in the spirit world
with open arms and love without restraint.
We wait for the actions of our relatives
or some other dear and loving saint.
For one reason or another
our work was not completed while on earth.
Please, dear friend, please review each life
from death back to their birth.
Please fill the gaps that you find blank
and help us on our way.
We need your help so desperately, dear friend,
we pray for such each day.
We know, dear friend, that you are busy
with things of great import.
We also know, dear friend, that you
would not purposely place our salvation on abort.
Please search our trees, seek out our names
and determine what our stance.
Then, dear friend, please complete
all ordinances and covenants to help us to advance.
We look down upon you each and every day
and envy the power that is yours .
We realize that in one instantaneous decision
you could unlock our prison doors.
We are relying, dear friend, on your family history and temple work
to help to see us through.
We say with great gratitude and anticipation
that our return to our Heavenly Father, dear friend, depends decidedly on you.
George A. Jeffs, January 12, 1998
