Our lives were forever changed the day we lost Corey. He was an amazing man who loved the Lord and his family with all that he was. The pain of losing him is like no other. Our only comfort comes from knowing we will see him again someday.

I have moved the slideshow played at Corey's service to it's own post page above, titled "Corey's Memorial Service - August 10, 2010"

Christmas in Heaven

I wanted to share a poem that my friend Leslie sent me that brought tears to my eyes. Grab your tissues...The author is unknown.

I've had my first Christmas in heaven
   A glorious, wonderful day.
I stood with the saints of all ages,
   Who found Christ the Truth and the Way.
I sang with the heavenly choir,
   Just think, I who loved so to sing.
And oh, what celestial music
   We brought to our Savior and King.
We sang the glad songs of redemption,
   How Jesus to Bethlehem came,
And how they had called His name Jesus,
   That all might be saved through his name.
We sang once again with the angels,
   The song that they spoke that blest morn.
When shepherds first heard the glad story
   That Jesus, the Savior, was born.
O dear ones, I wish you had been there,
   No Christmas on earth could compare
With all the rapture and glory
   We witnessed in heaven so fair.
You know how I always loved Christmas,
   It seemed such a wonderful day,
With all my loved ones around me,
   The children so happy and gay.
Yes, now I can see why I loved it,
   And oh, what a joy it will be
When you and my loved ones are with me
   To share the rich glories I see.
So, dear ones on earth, here are my greetings,
   Look up till the day dawn appears
And oh, what a Christmas awaits us
    Beyond our parting tears.
