Cynthia Rylant is the author of Cat Heaven and Dog Heaven, must-haves for pet owners if only to make you appreciate them even more while they’re here. I thought about these on Monday when I was driving home from Virginia across Skyline Drive, Dan’s favorite place in the world. And I hoped that he is happy wherever he is. I know he is in God’s presence, but my human mind can’t begin to know what that means. So, here are some things I hope are in Dan Heaven.

Autumn all the time
Hot oatmeal with brown sugar for breakfast
The Miami Professional Football Dolphins winning the Super Bowl every year
A big stone fireplace
Animals (even buggy ones that I would normally ask him to “remove”)
Elwood and Jake
His dad and sister
All the friends he watched die of cancer over the years
Fields of soft grass to run in
The ability to run, and breathe
Sleeping with the windows open
Apple crisp
James Taylor tunes
Kool Aid
Mountain Dew
A Christmas shop
Thanksgiving dinner every night
Candy (Nerds, maple sugar candy, sour balls, Hershey bars)
A nice Italian restaurant

Not sure about the others, but I'm betting Elwood and Jake are there.
