For those who have lost a loved one. This was originally posted on this board two or three years ago I believe. To the OP thank you for sharing.
My First Christmas in Heaven
See the countless Christmas trees around the world below.
With tiny lights like heaven’s stars reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular. Please wipe away the tear.
I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear.
But the sound of music can’t compare with the Christmas Choir here.
I have no words to tell you the joy their voices bring.
It is beyond description to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me. I see the pain inside your heart.
Even though I am far away, we really aren’t apart.
So be happy for me, loved ones. You know I hold you dear.
Be glad I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I send you each a special gift from my heavenly home above.
I send you each a memory more precious than gold.
It was always more important in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other as my Father said to do.
For I cannot count the blessings, or the love, He has for you.
Have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear.
Remember I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I love you.

Please post this in O&E, as well. There are quite a few there who should read this, but they don't all come here.

Definitely a time for memories ! Thanks Pat
Aww, Pat. This is the second post today that has made me cry. Christmas is a difficult time to be without a loved one.
“If I know every single phone call you’ve made, I’m able to determine every single person you’ve talked to; I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive. And the real question here, is what do they do with this information that they collect – that does not have anything to do with al-Qaeda? And we’re gonna trust the president and the vice president that they’re doing the right thing? Don’t count me in on that.”

Thank you for this. We have lost several human family members this year and I know there are a few who could use this poem this morning. I have forwarded it on.
Merry Christmas - to those who have lost a loved one.... of any shape or size or form.... may God grant you serenity and strength -
