Cletus would like to let you know that all his work here on earth is done. He received a call, one offering him an opportunity he couldn’t refuse, for its time for an important appointment and he wouldn’t be returning. This assignment comes with many benefits, a huge sign-on bonus, and a joyous reunion his wife of seventy-six years as well as many other loved ones that he hasn’t seen in a very long time. This mission will be the greatest yet. It’ll take him to a place where the streets are gold, happiness and love is guaranteed, and his heart will be content. He leaves behind a note to his children and loved ones with specific directions to celebrate his life that he lived on earth and to not be sad, for he will see you all very soon.
