MY CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN
The Guest Book is expired.
by Wanda Bencke
I 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 that tear, for I am spending Christmas in Heaven this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear, but the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.
I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring, for it's beyond description, to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me. I see the pain inside your heart, but I am not so far away. We really aren't apart.
So, be happy for me dear ones, for you know I'm spending Christmas in Heaven this year.
I send you each a special gift from my heavenly home above: "My undying love!"
After all, "love" is the gift more precious than pure gold.
It was always most important in the stories we've been told.
Please love and keep each other as I always said to do, for I can't count the many blessings or love I have for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear.
Remember, I'm spending Christmas in Heaven this year.
Love, Sam and Bonnie
THANK YOU FOR MY PAST
by Jolene Simon
To my loved ones from me;
Please don't cry about me.
I'm up here in the sky,
Still watching your lives go by.
I'm at peace don't you worry,
My love you did not bury.
I'm in no pain; I did not die in vain.
So why am I writing this you ask?
I'm sending thank you for my past.
Thank you to my love of 50+ years
Please have no fear; don't shed another tear.
To my children, I loved you more each day;
Remember my love that way.
Thank you to my daughter and best friend forever; I know this is tough
Please know you loved me more than enough
To my grandchildren, you will forget me not;
Please cherish the blankets you got.
Thank you to my friends, the two best forever
Your comfort helped me rest, forget never
To my special siblings you know who you are
I'm with mom and dad; we're not too far
For all who loved me;
I'm at peace don't you worry
Please don't be sad; you know I'd be mad
Don't cry. Why might you ask?
Just remember me from Christmas past.
Remember my love for you will ever last.
Love, Max, Mom, Grandma or whoever I am to you.
I forever cherish my memory of you.
Love Your Grandchildren, Jolene, Glen, Tony, Amanda, Rose and Kevin and Your Great Grandchildren, Tilon, Zaid and Tayva
