Today was a hectic day of travel and visiting. We started our travels at the St. Louis Airport and flew in to Phoenix. Oh. . . what grand reunions we had with our various families and grandchildren. You would have thought that they hadn’t seen their grandma in years; well it has been over 9 months since they’ve seen us.
There were hugs all around as we visited a number of our sons and their families as well as Sis. Johnson’s parents and her brother and family. We love our family, both close and far and we know they support and sustain us while we serve as missionaries in the Illinois, Nauvoo Mission.
It is a sad and solemn occasion that brings us home for a week to attend the funeral of Victor Wilson. And even though we’ve lost our brother-in-law, this whole week will be a celebration of his life. And it was a good, full life filled with dedication, service, humor, friendship, work and love of family. He will be missed but never forgotten.
