After a long illness, a woman died and arrived at the Gates of Heaven. While she was waiting for St. Peter to greet her, she peeks through the gates. She saw a beautiful banquet table. Sitting all around were her parents and all the other people she loved and who had died before her. They saw her and began calling greetings to her. “Hello. How are you? We’ve been waiting for you. Good to see you.”

When St Peter came by, the woman said to him, “This is such a wonderful place. How do I get in?”

“You have to spell a word,” St. Peter told her.

“Which word?” the woman asked.


The woman correctly spelled love, and St Peter welcomes her to Heaven.

About six months later, St. Peter came to the woman and asked her to watch the Gates for him that day. While the woman is on guard, her husband arrived. “I’m surprised to see you,” the woman said. “How have you been?”

“Oh, I’ve been doing pretty well since you died,” her husband told her. “I married the beautiful young nurse who took care of you while you were ill. Then I won the lottery, sold the little house you and I lived in and bought a big mansion. My new wife and I traveled all around the world. We were on vacation and I went water skiing today. I fell, the ski hit my head, and here I am. How do I get in?”

“You have to spell a word,” the woman told him.

“Which word?” her husband asked.
