Mom with a Christopher ornament for Christmas!

Christopher's Christmas Page


Christmas and getting the family together for the holidays always brought a smile to her face!

These are three special Christmas gifts for my Mom from my friend Marie.

These three lovely Christmas gifts are from Cindy of Always on Our Minds Graphics.

This beautiful Christmas gift is from Renee who is also a designer for Always on Our Minds Graphics.

This very special gift is from Dianne of Special Angels Kept So Near In Memory.

These two beautiful gifts are from Cindy of Audrey's Angel Graphics.

My Mom with Christopher for his first Christmas. They are together in Heaven celebrating Christmas with Jesus.

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 the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.

I have no words to tell you of 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
for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I can't tell you of the splendor or the peace here in this place
Can you just imagine Christmas with our Savior face to face?

I'll ask him to lift your spirit as I tell him of your love
so then pray for one another as you lift your eyes above.

Please let your hearts be joyful and let your spirit sing
for I am spending Christmas in heaven and I'm walking with the King.

This beautiful Christmas gift for my Mom is from my friend Kerry.

My Mom is reunited with her loving husband in Heaven for Christmas now, sigh.

This special gift for my Mom and Dad is also from Dianne.

And this lovely gift is also from Renee.

Please visit my Dad's Christmas web page also!

My friend Ann, Laura's mom, sent this Father Christmas with the animals to me. Note the snowy owl on his arm and the wolves at his feet.
This has to be a sign to me from both of my parents!

Ann also sent this special Christmas gift for my Mom's web page.

My Mom with my daughter Rachel. They had a very special bond, and Rachel misses her Gram very much.

Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade,
because one loved is gone.
Those we love can never be,
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is a memory,
they live on in our heart.

This beautiful gift was given to me by my dear friend, Joyce.


A friend can hear a tear drop.
