Baby, Take Your BowBy: Chris Rice

We're gonna miss your song and dance
The way you made us laugh
And we're so glad we had
The pleasure for a while
But on the other side
You'll find a better audience
Just be yourself,
And you can't help but make
The angels smile

Baby all the world's a stage
Playwright pens your final page
And then
He brings your curtain down
So blows us your kisses
And drench our eyes
We'll rise to our feet to wave goodbye
For now
So baby take your bow

The world is lovelier
Because you had your moment here
And we could see a friend
Of heaven in your face
And in your song we heard
The longing for a distant shore
And now your time has come
To go and so be on your way

(Chorus) The show is over now
It's time to lay your burdens down
So baby take...
Your bow

Sweet Christi, Three years ago this morning you made your heavenly debut back into God's great kingdom. I hope you have a glorious day celebrating the anniversary of your arrival Home. You now dance on a stage far more glorious than we can even possibly imagine. You will forever be missed by your family! We love you so much!

Until we see you and hold you again, remember we love you and please keep watching over us and all of those who took such a fondness to you. We all need help and guidance. Please pray for us!

Mommy, Daddy & Shayla

Thinking of you and praying for your family. I can not believe it has been three years!! Next week marks 9 years since my brother died at the young age of 20.
Heaven really does have some special angels!

I kept waking up this morning and didn't quite realize why, until I looked at the clock and realized it was 10 to 9.

Fly high, sweet Christi!! Must be a blast dancing on Heaven's stage =)

Thinking of you guys today!!

Shayla-- Have a great time today in the Parade! I'm sure I join others in saying we want to hear all about it =)

Thinking of Christie today, and just checking in. I have been an anomonous follower of her site since a few months before she passed. I have posted a few times in the past, but especially wanted to post today.

Missing you Christie! I know mama, daddy and Shayla can't wait to see you again someday. Enjoy your dancing in Heaven with the angels today!

Beautiful tribute, perfect song, for a beautiful person who truly carried her burden with such dignity... this day is one of those, "where were you when" days. Personally, I never believed that Christi would actually die. She had been so close so many times before, and somehow, she always came back to her loved ones. I was on a ferry, standing on the open deck, when a white bird came by and just rode the wind, keeping pace with the boat. My only thought was of Christi's spirit, totally free, and flying with such effortless speed. Still, we can't help but feel pain at her loss, even though we try to hold to the joy of her, dancing with such delight on Heaven's stage. We pray for her dear family, all of her friends, and for ourselves, that we can hold to the hope, and not the loss. Oh we miss you, Christi. Please watch over us, and our pets, too.
