Until we meet again

My second son's father-in-law recently died.  It is always hard when a good man leaves us.  I am filled with gratitude for the exemplary life he lead and the love he showered on my son and his beautiful family.  My spirit is awed by the interlacing family relationships that we begin to build here on this earth.  I can almost picture them in the world to come....the myriad connections we will discover to exist with those we love. No one will be left out.  When my son met and grew to love his sweet wife, we discovered that her father and my father worked together in the temple.  The respect and admiration they had for each other strengthened the love our children felt and built the love between our families.  How glad we are to know that these absences, however hard to bear, are only temporary.  Till we meet again Bill Ekins
