Sisters Ann Coffman of Russellville and Patty Smith of Bowling Green dedicated the following poem to their brother, Ken Smith, who passed away Aug. 1 of this year.

My First Christmas in Heaven
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below 
With tiny lights like Heaven’s starts, reflecting on the snow. 
The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away the 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 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 sent you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above, 
I sent 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 blessing or 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.
