ill title 

In 1998 Grimes Funeral Chapels began a "Miracles and Memories" Christmas program in which our staff takes a great deal of pride each year.  This Christmas service gives the families that are served over the past year, as well as others in the community who have been bereaved, an opportunity to come together as one group to celebrate lives well lived.

 
     

The service includes a time of prayer, scripture reading, Christmas music and a message from a local minister.  Each family receives a special ornament of remembrance. Everyone in the community is invited and encouraged to take part in this service.  We are especially proud of the heart-warming response we have received to this memorial observance.

 

***Special Note***

Our 2013 Miracles and Memories Christmas program will take place on Thursday, December 19th in Bandera at 6:00 PM and on Sunday, December 22nd in Kerrville at 4 PM. This beautiful program allows our families and friends to come together to honor, to remember, and to celebrate the lives that have been lived-- allowing all of us to offer support and guidance to one another.

 

"My First Christmas in Heaven"

I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below,
With tiny lights like Heavenís stars reflecting on the snow.

The sight is so spectacular please wipe away that tear,
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
But the sound of music cannot
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 arenít apart.

So be happy for me dear ones. You know I hold you dear,
And be glad I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ
this year.

I send you each a special gift from the heavenly home above,
I send you each a memory of my undying love,

After all Love is a giftmore precious than pure gold.
It was always most important in the stories that Jesus told.

Please love each other as The Father said to do,
For I cannot count the blessings or love He has for you.

So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear,
Remember I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
