Friday, Dec. 30, 2016 – Mesa Arizona Temple, Family, Visitation for Victor Wilson
This morning we attended an endowment session at the Mesa, Arizona Temple. We had more than a dozen of our family in attendance. Many more would have liked to attend with us but they had to work or had other obligations. Even so, those of us that could attend had a wonderful session together. I love to attend the Temple and feel the warm comforting influence of the Holy Ghost as we enter into the house of the Lord.
We are consoled in the knowledge that the Plan of Salvation allows us to be reassured that our loved ones who have passed from this mortal life are not lost and gone forever. We know that our brother, father and friend, Victor Wilson, (my brother-in-law) is on the other side of the veil with his eternal family. His pain and suffering are gone and he is with the Lord.
This evening Sis. Johnson and I attended Victor Wilson’s visitation along with hundreds of others who are his friends, family, and associates. And, because we know the Plan of Salvation all of us who attended the visitation had a wonderful time talking about Vic Wilson, telling stories celebrated his life. If there were tears shed tonight, it was sorrow for ourselves and our loss but not for Vic Wilson. We all know he is at piece and in the rest of the Lord. There were people, friends, family and associates that came from all over the US to be here to celebrate Vic Wilson’s life.
