" He loved golfing. He must be in heaven playing golf." Of course he is Fred, and enjoying every minute of it.
" He always said he wanted to spend eternity fishing. Catching record trout every day." That's where he is Tom, sitting in a row boat right now in that great fishin' hole in the sky.
"He is waiting for the resurrection." That's where he is Homer. Waiting for the resurrection.
