My mom died peacefully on a Friday, June 27, 2008. It is a blessing, but it takes some getting used to. In the picture above, she is seen in the wheelchair surrounded by my niece, Stephanie Lu, my sons Matt Stoutenburg and Tony Lang, my dad, Wayne, my sister, Sheryl Lu, and my bride Pamela. The hospice nurse asked her why she was smiling. Her last words, responding to that question after a dozen hours of silence, were "I see Jesus."
The Lord has given; the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord!
