Roger Breland lost his brother-in-law, Jeff Johnson, who loved to hear Kim Noblitt sing.

According to Jeremy Breland, Kim Noblitt wrote “If You Could See Me Now” for Jeff and his family, after Jeff passed.  The song was performed for the first time at Jeff’s funeral.

The song is told from the view point of the loved one that has passed away.  The song shares that although we miss the person, if we could see them now we would not want him/her to return.

The song has minister to many who have lost loved ones and serve as a reminder of what our loved ones are doing now.
