Condolence & Memory Journal

Sending our sincere condolences to the family. It is so very sad and heart-breaking to lose that very special loved one. As I was putting up my Christmas decorations, I once again hung the following poem which I'm sure Aubrey would say to all his loved ones. " I'm spending Christmas with Jesus this year! I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below with tiny lights,lie heaven stars reflecting on the snow. The site is so spectacular, please wipe away that tear, for I'm 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. For I have no words to tell you the joy their voices bring, for it is beyond description to hear an angel sing. I can't tell you about 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 light 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'm spending Christmas in heaven and I'm walking with the King!"
