90-year-old Mike and Joe had been friends all their lives. During Joe's final day, Mike made sure to visit him and he would sit by his bed and enjoy reflecting on the old days.
Mike reminded Joe about all the years they used to enjoy playing football every Saturday. Looking at his dying friend he asked that when he got to heaven he should try to send him some sort of message to let him know if there was football in the afterlife.
Just before he died Joe accepted Mike's request. In the days following Joe's death, Mike was woken up at midnight by a blinding white light that flashed brightly in his face.
As he struggled to see what was in front of him, he suddenly heard a voice calling him from a distance. He finally sat up and answered the voice, asking "Who is it?"
The voice answered and said it was Joe. However, Mike didn't think it could be real and questioned how it could be Joe when he died just a few days ago.
Still unsure of who was speaking to him, Mike needed further proof to believe that it was his friend reaching out to him.
After some convincing, he finally believed that is was Joe, who revealed that he was in heaven. He shared the good news that he and some of their old friends enjoy playing football all the time and never get tired. However, he told Mike that he had some bad news, and shared:
"You're in the team for this Saturday's match!"
