I know where Mother is now, for no one had any doubt that she loved and followed the Lord. I'm sure one of the first things she did after visiting with Jesus was find her two granddaughters who went before her, and then they all had to be with Grandma Lyles. Mother never spent much time with her mother here on Earth. As a military man, my father's service took us all over the world, with just brief visits with my mother's family. Now, Mother and Grandma can make up for all the many years they never saw one another.
Happy Mother's Day, too, mothers of my grandchildren (Rene, Brenda, and Janelle) and great-grandchildren (Macayla and Keri). You have blessed me as a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
