Pierre Poirier - In Memoriam
POIRIER, Pierre - In loving memory of Pierre Poirier who passed away December 24, 2006 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 sound of music cannot 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 in 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 am 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 each other as the Father said to do. For I cannot count the blessing or love he has for you. So Have A Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear, Remember I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year. Toujours dans nos coeurs Suzanne, Louise, Jordan, Ron & Kelly
