My Mom's Last Trip

February 21st 2016
Today my Mom left for Heaven. It's a one way trip. I will miss her a lot, as she was a constant presence in my life; always there when I needed her. At least she will be with Dad who took this same trip on August 2, 1988. And she will meet Jesus and many friends and family...what a homecoming! She took many trips for God in the 94 years she travel this earth; telling so many people about Him. ... read more

Family First
Please accept our condolences at this time Bob & Linda & your family. It is difficult on the death of a loved one to know and remember what to say. But as part of your life's work Bob, has been to document your life of myriads of homes and journeys, the details are there for posterity. And thus the story of your mother's life in your family's can be told...and what a journey of adventure it was. In our brief times with you in Oz & your home in USA, Denise & I were always impressed that your dedication to family was paramount. Your mother's story shows where you got this from. I'm sure your Dad played a big part in this also. How wonderful to be blessed and loved by such an amazing mother who has been such an inspiring influence in your life.

Family first...
very true, and we could see your affection of your own children...getting together with Simon in Toronto and then him coming home with his girlfriend (fiancée?). It's nice that your daughter lives nearby and is following in the footsteps of her dad.

A Wonderful Life!
What an adventurer your mom was--meeting a man on a ship and marrying him, far from home. And then being up for all those lovely travels, even though surely it was she who bore the brunt of packing all of you up (I went to 14 schools as a Navy brat and saw my mom's hard work). Great that she traveled with her husband and family, her good friend and later with her kids--nothing was going to stop her. And good for you for chronicling your life of travel--I really admire you for this. So sorry about your mom's passing, but as you said, she had a long and full life. May we all be so blesses.
