Week 19 - JuJuy (Special Skype & Tribute to Grandma Wilde Walker)

Monday, August 11, 2014

[Alec's Grandma Walker passed away Sunday, August 10, 2014. Neil called the Mission Office in Salta to notify the mission president and have them relay the information to Alec. The mission president gave Alec permission to call us or skype.  Susan had already flown out to Utah and was staying with her brother, Dale and his wife, Cheryl.  We were blessed to be able to have a three-way skype and share this experience with him.

We certainly feel it was the Lord's tender mercy for our family to have been able to fly to Utah for vacation the end of July and be with mom (not knowing it would be our last). I wanted to include in Alec's blog a small tribute to his grandmother --- including his Aunt Wendy's blog entry, a picture that --- to our family --- describes Grandma Walker to a tee, along with her obituary.  She truly was an incredible person.  We love and miss her].
