One thing that I missed being able to participate in while I was in Africa was Aubrey’s graduation from paramedic school. Since I wasn’t there to get any “proud mother” pictures, the “proud auntie” pictures will have to suffice. Thanks Annette for taking time from your own busy life to celebrate Aubrey’s accomplishment with her.

You never know when you’re going to see someone for the last time. I last saw my brother Tom who I wrote about in March about a month ago before leaving for Africa. The day we were flying back last Sunday was the last time he was able to come to church. He crossed the river into the presence of Jesus today. The first thing that entered my mind when I heard the news was the first line of the chorus, “It Will Be Worth It All When We See Jesus.” I’m sure he would tell me that now if he could.
At the service last week, they sang some of Tom’s favorite songs. Here is one of them.
