Today I am remembering a special Christmas,
Twenty years ago,
When you and Laura were both only 6 years old,
Just as you are pictured in your special train above.
It was a magical time of the year for all of us,
When you could hardly wait for the days to pass
Until Christmas and Santa would be here!


Of course, there were ALWAYS trains involved--
Trains running around the base of the tree,
Train ornaments hanging from the tree,
Trains on the table and
Trains on the mantel.
How could it be Christmas at our house
If there were no trains?


Now, Laura is 26 and the mother of two,
And you have been in heaven for almost 10 years
And things will never be quite the same for Dad and me.
We are grateful, though,
For those precious sixteen years you spent with us,
And we are thankful for our two beautiful granddaughters
Whose eyes sparkle with the same wonder and excitement
That we saw all those years ago in you and Laura.


And, of course, there are still trains--
Trains running around the base of the tree,
And train ornaments hanging from the tree,
Trains on the table,
And trains on the mantel.


And we know you are here in spirit,
With eyes still sparkling with wonder and excitement,
Precious eyes that have now beheld Christ,
Whose birth it is we celebrate.
And we know that you wait patiently for the day
When we will join you in heaven,
Where our eyes, too, will sparkle with wonder and excitement
When we behold the Baby Born at Christmas.


Merry Christmas in Heaven, my precious Robbie!

With all my love, Mom
