BROWN, LINDA (Memoriam) - Jim Thorpe  
In Loving Memory of Linda F. Brown My First Christmas in Heaven 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 with Jesus Christ this year. I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear But that music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here. I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring For it is 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 loved ones; you know I hold you dear And be glad I'm spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year. I sent you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above-- I sent you each a memory of my undying love. After all, "Love" is the gift, more precious than pure gold It was always most important in the stories Jesus told. Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do For I can't count the blessings or love He has for you. So, have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear-- Remember, I'm spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year. Sadly missed by Husband, Children and Brown Family
