  1. Dear Azrael,

    Thank you for helping to guide my life. Love always!

    1. I am glad to have helped my friend.

  2. Dear Joanne,

    Thank you!

  3. Thank you! Glory be to God!

  4. Its more question, when you die can you possibly become one of his angel helpers if you ask?

    1. if you wanted to stay in heaven and help the others then, I think so. Although most people come back to the physical realm because more can be done from the 3rd dimension than the higher dimension.

  5. Thank you Archangel Azrael for you comfort and guidance throughout my life. <3
