Cate Shares her Penny
Tommy: Remember when you said, it dropped from the sky, but…
Cate: I didn’t say it dropped from the sky. I did not say that…
Allison: So can you clarify what you said Cate?
Cate: I said, I don’t know how they get from heaven…
Tommy: So, you said they fall from the sky...so if it was raining pennies, then that would be so weird
Tegan: yeah bc then there would be pennies all over the place!
Cate: It was not raining pennies!
Will asks, "Where did your grandma get it?"
Cate: I don’t know, my grandma didn’t it…she um, okay, so there’s pennies in heaven, so um, there’s pennies in heaven, that’s what I’ve figured out…
Will: So, so, but then, maybe she just found it somewhere?
Cate: No, I’m sure it was there just in heaven
James: I can see heaven right now cate
Cate: Where, what does it look like? wait…
James: I can see heaven right out there and there are no pennies
Cate: no one can see heaven
yes you can see heaven
[children look up at the ceiling….”i can see pennies up there”]
Will: Then where did….did she…then maybe she just had it there herself or she just like, brought it from a store or something, or…
Cate: i didn’t get it until she was dead
Will: was it just in heaven or did she just find it? Or we didn’t know where she got it or get it?
Cate: she didn’t get it from anywhere, she just sended it from heaven. So I um, I know that maybe she had her purse, she takes…money…she um had all the um when she died, money from her purse disappears in heaven…
James: Money is not real in heaven cause they can’t float really in heaven
Will: how, what, how did she bring it here?
Cate: I do not know
Melanie: sounds like Will was asking, ‘where in heaven did she get it?’
Will: no, I was asking how did it get here from heaven?
Cate: I do not know
Allison: Sounds like it’s a little bit of a mystery
James: yeah, it’s a mystery
Cate: I can’t find out because, um, she’s in heaven
Tegan: and you cant get to heaven
James: unless you take a rocket ship
Cate: no, no unless you just die and then you can get to heaven
Elena: and you go to heaven to die
Cate: She did not buy it from the store. Okay, so I do not know how it got there but I think she just sended it from heaven…
James: Did it come in an envelope?
Cate: No, its just…all the pennies I find that she sends is just like this…all the time…
James: Can I feel it?
James: it feels like a really dead, kinda like from heaven, cause that’s the feel of heaven actually
Cate: that’s actually what heaven feels like
Abby: heaven feels like just [hay?]….because that’s what people die in heaven. And then god takes care of them in there, because god is there.
Cate: I have a man on it. I’m gonna pass it around….
Lily: what…maybe it fell from a drain!
Cate: I don’t even think so because I never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever see it like drop...
Lily: maybe the penny could fly!
