This Christmas I share this poem in memory of Paul's father, Rev. David P Heil, who went to be with the Lord on December 4, 2012. I hope it comforts those of you who are sorrowing this Christmas season.
"The Empty Chair"
Around the Christmas table there's an empty chair this year...
The precious smile is missing of someone we still hold dear.
And yet our hearts are hopeful, though the season's bittersweet
Because we know the one we love has filled another seat.
For another banquet table abounds with joy and love
For those who've made the journey to be with our Lord above.
