John Mooney wrote "Merry Christmas From Heaven" in 1989, after the death of his mother in August. His only intention was to present it to his family that year at Christmas. He knew it was going to be a very difficult holiday season without her. The words, and the comfort he and his family needed, came to him after a prayer one night. As he wrote, he thought of the words his mother might say to each one of them.
The Merry Christmas from Heaven® Ornament comes in a beautiful burgundy box and is now made of lead-free jeweler's metal, silver-plated with a pewter finish, then hand-antiqued and hand-polished.
Engraved on the front of each ornament is the last, and most memorable verse of the poem:
"Merry Christmas From Heaven"
"I love you all dearly
Now don't shed a tear
I'm spending my Christmas
With Jesus this year."
The Ornament can be easily engraved, and the back has been left blank, except for the copyright information that has been discretely placed. Contained and displayed to the side of the ornament is the entire poem in bookmark form.

|Review:||I gave it as a gift to a friend who had just lost her brother. She was so touched and loved it and said she will use it every Christmas and think of me. I lost my 28 year old daughter 8 years ago and found this ornament. Since that time I have given it as gifts to those people who have been touched by the loss of a loved one.|
