Even though this is Montana's 3rd Christmas in Heaven I thought I would post this poem that I found on Facebook.
My First Christmas in Heaven
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below
With tiny lights, like Heaven's star, reflecting on the snow.
The sight is 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 blessings of 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.

T'was the night before Christmas, at the Rainbow Bridge too
We Bridge kids were thinking, as always, of you
We'd seen how the holidays weren't bright this year
Heard you whisper so often, "I wish you were here"
We know how you wish you could just stay in bed
And sleep through the holiday lying ahead
When all celebrate with their loved ones so near...
Unless they have loved one on this side this year
But we're no less alive here, on the other side
If you could just see us, you would've laughed and not cried
The dogs all in harness, pulling the sleigh
The cats all in Santa hats pointing the way
The pet birds all flying back over the rainbow
Bound homeward in spite of Earth's darkness and snow
All the pets that you've lost, pets for whom you've cried
Flying home on this Christmas to be by your side
If you feel warm fur brush you when no pet's around
Hear a soft bark or purr, just a ghost of a sound
We're trying to tell you we're visiting this way
And our visits, even rainbows, can be on any day
But for Christmas we have something special to do
A sleigh full of happy dream visits for you
On doggy, on kitty, on winged friend and ferret!
The love that you lavished, we mean now to share it!
We're fetching that love home, the way we once played
With the closeness we shared and the memories we made
Our Earth lives with you were too short for us, too
And on this Christmas Eve, we have so much to do
So all through this night as you sleep in your beds
Sweet visions of fur babies dance in your heads
This one special night we can bring you Home for awhile
Your true home in Heaven, where again you will smile
Over the Rainbow you'll fly, for a short while this night
Hours that you'll be happy, hours that will feel right
Hours to cuddle and kiss us, to run and to play
Before the return to Earth in our magic way
