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, 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, dear ones, you know I hold you dear,
And be glad I’m spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I send you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above,
I send you each a memory of my undying love.
After all, love is a 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 the love He has for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear.
Remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

    Dear Auntie Vi,

    We have been so blessed to have you as a special part of our lives! Now, our loss is Heaven’s gain.

    As you rejoice in the eternal Peace of Christ, our hearts hold wonderful memories of your happy smile and beautiful spirit. We cherish the gift.

    Our love and prayers,
    Bud and Marilyn

    I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
    Oh, so happy and so bright!
    There is perfect joy and beauty in this everlasting light.
    All the pain and grief is over, every restless tossing passed;
    I am now at peace forever, safely home in Heaven at last.
    Did you wonder I so calmly trod the valley of the shade? Oh! But Jesus’ love illuminated every dark and fearful glade.
    And he came Himself to meet me in that way so hard to tread;
    And with Jesus’ arm to lean on, could I have one doubt or dread?
    Then you must not grieve so sorely, for I love you dearly still:
    Try to look beyond earth’s shadows, pray to trust our Father’s Will.
    There is work still waiting for you, so you must not idly stand; do it now, while life remaineth – you shall rest in Jesus’ land.
    When that work is all completed, He will gently call you Home; Oh, the rapture of that meeting, Oh, the joy to see you come!

  2. Auntie Vi:

    When I was a young kid and knew I would be heading to Connecticut for the summer, I always looked forward to visiting some family more than others. You were always on my “must see” list. The reasons were obvious, you treated me like family and not some distant great-Nephew from California. I also remember your affinity for sharing sweets with me! What kid wouldn’t want an Aunt like that? You and Uncle Ed were always so kind to me. My first trip to Fenway Park was something special and I will never forget that experience. When you moved to California, it was nice to see you on a more regular basis. Still, I am disheartened that I did not see you more often during the last several years and I regret that. I am so thankful I was able to be apart of your life. I can still hear your boisterous laugh and see that wonderful smile. I will look forward to seeing that again. Until then, God bless and may you rest in peace.

  3. I have such fond memories of Mrs. Baldyga and the years spent on Rolling Ridge Road in Windham. Her home was a second home to me as I shared a wonderful friendship with her daughter, Mary Anne.

    I can only imagine how happy she was to have all of her loving family together with her recently.

    May you all take great comfort in knowing that she no longer struggles, and is at peace with the Lord.

    With sympathy,
    Jeanne and Jack Guessetto

  4. Dear Auntie Vi:

    I will always remember what a sweet and loving Aunt you were and all the wonderful times we spent at your house visiting when we were kids. You were always so sweet to all of us and made us feel special. Love to you from my mother who always spoke of you even though you were not near and has wonderful fond memories of a great friendship with you. Love to you from Dad, your brother, who always loved you dearly and did remember his sweet Violet in the end. Give a big hug to Mary, Kay and Catherine for all of us. All the beautiful women who gave us so much in our childhood, together again in peaceful eternity.
    love you all always, laurie
