One more in Heaven

This year has been hard letting go family members and friends that have passed away. I almost feel numb to it. However, though it's been sad, I have learned so much about our plan here on Earth. I have grown a stronger testimony of our Forever Families and the love Heavenly Father has for us. He has given us a huge blessing to be able to return to him and reunite with loved ones that have passed before us. This last week Mike's sweet Grandpa Lemon passed away and returned to live with Heavenly Father. I couldn't help but think about when I pass. I'll be welcomed by my Grandpa Jack, Aunt Amy, Grandpa Lemon... and so many more family members and friends. I found comfort in knowing that Grandpa Lemon was with the love of his life, Grandma Rhea. I imagined their sweet embrace, tears running down their cheeks as their long 5 year wait to see each other finally came. We love you Grandpa Lemon, and we will miss you!
