    I shared this with my ladies group as we had a discussion about our loses on Wednesday morning. We talked about sharing memories with our kids and how much we missed those who have gone before us..we talked about the anger some have felt but how wonderful that our God is big and can handle that anger.
    Thanks for sharing, I understand completely:
    13 years for Mom and most of my life for my Dad,,still miss them both

    WOW! What a heritage she left in you and what a beautiful tribute to her you did. Thanks for the reminder of all the important things.

    Oh Danny! Thanks for that great cry! That is so beautiful! Our mom was the greatest ever and we are all so blessed to have had her as long as we did. I remember everything you talked about except the Gore comment (I must have been eating the donuts!). But don’t forget about the two jets crossing and forming a cross in the sky after the funeral when they were putting her in the hearse. That was amazing also.
    She would be sooo proud of you as I am. I love you and I miss you!

    Danny,
    That was beautiful and wonderful and so very emotional. Your mom was all that you said and more that you didn’t have time to say. I always appreciated her integrity and encouragement.
    Love you guys!

    Danny,

    What a beautiful tribute to your Mom. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. My Dad has been gone for 8 years and I still think of him everyday and miss him so much. I’m so grateful to have learned so much about my faith in God from him. Your mother gave you a heart to bless others with the gospel. Thank you so much for all you do as a pastor at the Summit.

    Just found your blog and just read your post. My mother went to be with the Lord 10 years ago this month while under hospice care for heart/renal failure. She went to sleep one evening just before supper and woke up in Heaven. During that time in my life was the first time I heard the word, “God is good all the time.” She was a godly woman. It’s been a journey into believing that God is good whatever He does, but its’ been a port in many other storms I have weathered since that time.
