My parents (Jim & Virginia Waugh) were high school classmates with Gwen and Peter (my namesake), and Lloyd. Their friendship was special and treasured.
I remember stopping at their place in Omaha (Gwen & Lloyd) in the summer of 1970 and having home made ice cream and chocolate sheet cake. Gwen gave mom that cake recipe and made hundreds of those delicious cakes over the years!
Dad and I send our love, prayers, and thoughts to all of you.

Thank you to everyone who has shown their support to our family this past week. Our mother was so ready for heaven. I found a journal entry that she wrote on April 10, 2019. She said, "I'd prefer to be with Christ now – but I am still here – I will have to wait."
She didn't have to wait long! What a blessed hope we have in Christ Jesus. When she took her last weak breath here on earth, her very next breath was strong and healthy in the presence of her Savior! What a joyful reunion she must be having now with all her friends and family in heaven before her.
I had the privilege of bringing the message at her funeral.
My message was titled, "Lessons Learned from Mom's Rocking Chair." Sitting in her chair the morning after she left for heaven, I could see all around me what was important to her. Those things that were within arms reach. These things spoke loudly of the values that made her the strong and faithful woman of God she was.
First thing I saw was her bible. Her foundation for life was the Word of God, and knowing God's love for her personally. Secondly, was her prayer journal. She knew the power of prayer and prayed daily for her family, her country, and those she loved.
Finally, she had her to-do notes, her planning book, her preparations.
Gwen left us with this vital message for life: read the Word of God daily, applying it to everything you do, pray often, casting your cares of the Lord who cares for you. Trust Him always. And then be prepared, not only for the day but for eternity.
Gwen was prepared for eternity. She had received Jesus Christ as her Savior. She knew without a doubt that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
It is easy to get prepared for eternity. It says in Romans 10:9-10, "if you confess with your mouth, the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."

I have such fond childhood memories of Aunt Gwen's and Uncle Lloyd's annual summer visits to Presque Isle. I always looked forward to seeing them as well as my cousins, who I looked up to, Wendy, Debbie, and Sherrie. I corresponded with Aunt Gwen throughout my teenage years and received godly wisdom from her, especially regarding choosing my friends wisely. She was a godly woman and I know she is at peace with her Savior now - praising Him and laying her crowns at His feet! I'm certain He welcomed her with these words, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant . . . enter into the joy of your Lord." My thoughts are with you girls at this time.
