I have such fond memories of my Uncle Donald. When I started teaching in Springdale, he would come to my school and visit me when he was in Northwest Arkansas.
He and my dad worked together a lot, and as my parents got older, he would come by their house and bring them snacks quite often.
My mom loved her brothers, and they seemed to always take care of each other not only in childhood, but throughout their adult lives too.
They were brought up loving each other very much. I know my mom and dad and all the brothers were so glad to see Uncle Donald last Saturday when he went to heaven.
What a reunion they must have had❣️
I'm so thankful to have been brought up in a home and a church with the promise of eternal life when I accepted Jesus as my Savior. Because of that promise, I will be able to see them all again someday.
