I found this in my drafts to post on April 2, 2019
but obviously forgot to post so sharing it today...
the sentiments are just as true today.
Love you Mom & Heidi...May this be the year God brings Heidi home.
My mom passed away on Heidi's birthday, September 14, 2015, her last thoughts were on her youngest daughter. She wanted to know where she was. Yet God called her home before she would know the answer to this question. One thing I'm thankful for, my mom learned the answer before facing the twenty-fifth anniversary of her youngest daughter's kidnapping and murder. The tenth anniversary was a challenge because it had been a "decade", usually decades are celebrated not memorialized.
This year, a quarter of a century later, Heidi remains missing. As Mother's Day approaches, I think of my mom (obviously, right) and share a reminder of her and her last wish...to know where Heidi is.
May this be the year God reveals where Heidi's body is so she can be shown the respect and love she deserves. Love you Mom! Happy Mother's Day in Heaven. You are always near in our thoughts.
