    I found a penny today laying on the ground. But it’s not just a penny, this little coin I’ve found. Found pennies come from heaven, that’s what my Grandpa told me. He said Angels toss them down. He said when an Angel misses you, they toss a penny down; sometimes just to cheer you up, to make a smile out of your frown. So, don’t pass by that penny when you’re feeling blue. It may be a penny from heaven that Carmine tossed to you. You are in our prayers.
