A Six Year Old's Random Question About Heaven

So there we were the other night, snuggled up under the covers and on our way to sleep when I could see the wheels in Son #6's head start to turn (we are still co-sleeping).  He asked me, "Mommy, will we have new bodies when we go to Heaven?"  I told him that yeah, we would since these bodies are our earthly bodies and when we get to Heaven we'll get new ones that won't ever get sick or die.  He sighed and said, "Well I hope we don't."  I asked him why he felt that way.  He reached over and took my face in both of his hands and said, "I don't want you to have a new body.  I love this face.  It's so precious."  Giggle.  How's that for adoration!!!???
