It is well with my soul

We buried Gus today. I almost said we “laid him to rest” but that would be a lie because he isn’t “at rest”. He is in heaven and I am sure he is dancing and singing and playing the drums and talking and laughing and worshiping like crazy!

It was a very honorable graveside ceremony. (For those who don’t know, we had Bonnie’s grave opened (his wife) and his ashes were buried right above her casket, as he wanted.) The military honor guard presented a flag to Gary as the only son, performed a 21 gun salute and played Taps. When they gave the flag to Gary, our son Tyler fell apart and sobbed. As his Mom, that broke my heart.

One thing I didn’t expect was to miss Bonnie so much today. She has been in heaven for 11 years, but today I missed her as if she had just passed. She was a wonderful mother-in-law and I love and miss her very much! But I know deep in my heart that they are both in a wonderful, beautiful place and that alone allows me to say “It is well with my soul…”

Thank you for following us on this journey. Our dear friends and family have been the best support and that will carry us through. Happier days are certainly ahead.
