Personalized Memorial Christmas Ornaments

The Christmas Holiday Season is usually a time of celebration and family traditions.  Unfortunately, for many grieving people, this time of year can be very difficult.   What our grieving friends and families need is our love and support, more than any monetary gift.  While we wish there is something we could do to ease their pain, just being there with a listening ear and loving arms is all that is required.

When we feel as though we would like to give a Memorial Gift to ease the pain, a suitable gift is usually difficult to find.  In this situation, it is not the cost of the gift that matters, it’s the thought and impact the gift will have to help them feel as though their loved one is close during the holidays.  Remember Me offers a great selection of inexpensive Personalized Memorial Christmas Ornaments just for that reason.

“Forever In Our Hearts” is a sentiment that expresses the feelings of those grieving.  We offer a few Personalized Memorial Ornaments with this popular saying:

Another popular and comforting sentiment is Christmas In Heaven.  We also offer a couple of ornaments with this saying:

We also carry a selection of Personalized Memorial Christmas Ornaments with the simple sentiment of “In Loving Memory”:

Are You Stressed or Depressed this Holiday Season?

OK, take a deep breath and a moment to help yourself find a way to deal with the stress, and sometimes depression, that will hit you during the next few days.  Our Christmastime mentality puts us in high gear to have the Norman Rockwell family get-togethers with all the trimmings!

We set ourselves up for disappointment with such expectations!  Years ago, I read an article that touched on this subject.  I can sum up what I learned from this article in one sentence:  Instead of trying to realize all of your expectations, just look for that moment or two that you can carry in your heart for years to come.  I actually have practiced this philosophy for many years.  I have a memory full of these moments!

We tend to miss what we don’t have.  Unfortunately, we all are missing someone on Christmas.  Many of us yearn for the presence of that special person who has passed away.  I know I do.  Sometimes, it seems impossible to get past this feeling.  But, you can try…

Our memories are the most priceless gift that we possess.  Take a moment to open up this gift and allow the memories to bring you comfort.  Talk about them… chances are, others will treasure them as much as you do.

 

 

 

A Sympathy Message for Christmas

 


Often a sympathy message or sympathy poem will mean more to a grieving family member than anything else.  While we’d like to acknowledge their grief, we should to do it in a simple and respectful manner.

I found this beautiful poem that would be perfect for those who will be grieving during Christmas this year; perhaps this is their first Christmas without their loved one.  I can imagine typing up this poem, framing it very simply and inexpensively, wrapping it with beautiful paper, and putting an ornament on it with a bow.  What a simple and beautiful way to recognize and ease their pain, while also paying tribute to their lost loved one.

My First Christmas in Heaven – Words of Sympathy

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 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 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’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.

How Can We Help Those Grieving this Holiday Season?

Halloween has passed and Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  We all know what that means!  Christmas will, once again, sneak up on us.  Unfortunately, so many of us wish we could just skip over this holiday season.  Why?

It is incredibly sad that many are dreading this holiday season due to the passing of a loved one.  As many of you, I have personally witnessed a number of families struggles through Christmas… holding back the tears while putting a smile on their face as to not affect everyone else’s Christmas holiday.  Through these experiences, this appears to be the biggest obstacle:

People do not know how to react or what to say:  Do we mention how we miss that person who has passed away?  How will that make those grieving feel?  Is it better just to ignore the topic in order to prevent sadness?

This is my personal opinion:  They are already deeply saddened.  There is nothing we can do or say that will make them feel any worse… well, maybe there is… avoiding the topic.  They want to feel as though their loved one’s memory is still very much a part of the holiday season.

As I mentioned, this is my personal opinion due to my unfortunate experiences.  I can very well be wrong.  Please share your feeling or thoughts on this difficult topic.  Perhaps we can make someone’s holiday season a bit less painful.
