Carole and I are celebrating Mom’s transition to Heaven this week. There were reasons we wanted her to remain here, but none that compare to our joy of knowing she is free from the limitations of human knowledge and experiences here on earth. She is now beyond the earthly veil that separated her from her husband. Mom was almost 44 when Dad died, and lived another 44 years single, waiting to see him again. She has also now been reunited with her mom and dad, her sister and two brothers, and others who were special to her in this life. She was a faithful pastor's wife, pianist, soloist, Bible teacher, and mother.
