Birthdays in Heaven

Are there birthdays in Heaven?
Does the angel blow his horn?
Announcing to everybody
That this is the day you were born?

Can the stars be your balloons
And angel food your cake?
Presents wrapped in moonbeams
All the angels helped to make.

Birthdays meant so much to you
They were always a big deal
Birthday presents, lots of friends
And perhaps a special meal.

So I’ll whisper a little prayer today
Asking everyone up above
To sing you a Happy Birthday song
And give you all my love.

~From “Down the Cereal Aisle” p. 133~

    hi karen…….nat again just wanted to let u know that my mum and i went and saw barry on saturday…….it was nice to go there because my nans garve is right there about five metres away from barry and i was happy that i was able to see them both…… time i go there i will probably take flowers but it was very windy on sat and they probably would of blown away……hope daniel and gary and yourself are well…talk soon..

  4. Thank you, Nat. Unfortunately, Barry’s vase is quite small (as are all the vases for niches), so don’t take a huge bunch of flowers. Oh, a better idea is to take flowers to your nan’s grave and take a few out of that for Barry.

    I’m glad you’ve been to see him. I really am.
