We can do more than remember our deceased loved ones at Christmas; we can honor them. The author follows her beautiful introduction with 10 simple ideas that pay tribute to those who have died, whether their passing has been recent or long ago. “At Christmas,” concludes the author, “we celebrate the coming of God to dwell in our midst in the birth of Jesus Christ, the one who passed through death to new life. Our loved one has gone through this same passage. Honoring our loved one at Christmas helps us to keep them and what we loved about them always in our hearts, and to see and touch the power of life beyond death.
