" My first Christmas in heaven"
I see the countless trees
around the world below
With tiny lights like heavens stars
reflecting on the snow
the light is so spectacular,
please wipe away the tear.
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus 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.

My memory is of a mature "DIVA" with plenty of spunk and enough jazzy style to spread around. I met Geraldine only a couple times on Peoria where I lived across the hall from Marsha and Lisa in "Uncle Harry's" old apartment, but each occasion was filled with "fun" love.
I was talking with Lisa today and she brought up the time when I had to "Hook Her Up" on that one occasion on Peoria St. Because she was such

My Grandmother was everything to me. There was nothing she would do for her children or her grandchildren. She loved family, and she was the OLD DIVA as she would call herself. She was always independent on God and herself. My loving grandmother loved praying with me and love talking and sharing secrets with me. She encouraged me to go back to school, no matter how old I was and she told me anything you want to do in your
