Inspiring story. I found the first 2 paragraphs a bit jarring, but liked the rest of it
What a sweet family memory. God bless.

Well written story. The beginning dialogue was a good hook and the flow kept me reading.

Loved this story! It reminds us that sometimes what we have a desire to do will come to pass in the next generation. Like David, who wanted to build the temple, but like the child who could not sing, David had to wait for his son, Soloman to build it. She did not become a missionary but that did not mean her desire was not fulfilled in the next generation. Good insight to see that there are lots of ways for God to bless a holy desire, and sometimes it arrives as a surpise.

Sweet story - I would like to know that first song that Grandpa Walter sang that made him a goner...(smile) Nicely done.

I checked with my sisters and they can't remember, either. I have a vague recollection that my Mom told me it was "When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder." But, I'm not sure. I appreciate all your comments--thank you!
