A friend of ours lost his wife a few weeks ago. Their grandkids loved there grand parents.. Her husband wrote this to the G Kids from his wife. He sent us a copy and I found it so touching I asked him if it would be ok to share it.
Ron wrote back he would be honored.
To Connor and Julia
Merry Christmas from Heaven
I still hear the songs.
I still see the lights.
I feel your love on a cold wintery night.
I still share your hopes and all your care.
I’ll even remind you. So please say your prayers.
I just wanted to tell you. You make me proud.
You stand head and shoulders above all the crowd.
Keep trying each moment to stay in his grace.
I came hear before you to help set a place.
You don’t have to be perfect all the time.
He forgives if you slip, if you continue the climb.
To my family and friends, Please be thankful today.
I am still close beside you in a new special way.
I love you dearly. Now don’t shed a tear cause
I’m spending my Christmas with Jesus this year
