Farewell to a Mother

Yesterday morning, my spiritual mother who first led me to the Lord in April of 1979 went to be in the presence of our Savior for eternity. 

I cannot possibly find words to describe my relationship with her nor how she has impacted my life.  It cannot possibly be contained in a very large book.

So instead, I would simply like to say thank you to Lynn.  You have molded me into the man I am today.  I will never, ever forget you.  Though the pain of our earthly separation is unbearable, I have a deep anchor of hope and a wonderful anticipation for the time when we will be together again in glory.

Thank you, Mom, for believing in me, even when others and even myself did not.


  1. Anthony - words are always weak at a time like this - you have my sympathy - but you know that. So instead I'll pray that your heart quickly finds peace and that you find comfort in your memory and knowledge...

    hugs - aus and co.

  2. Rejoicing for her...sending prayers and hugs for you! I hope you guys are getting settled in out there...and staying as warm as possible! Make sure Adeye keeps her gloves on! :)

  3. Dear Anthony ~ I am sorry for the pain you are feeling. Today my Mom had a stroke. I don't yet know how this is going to affect her and I cannot even think about the possibility of her dying. Please, know that I will be praying for you, that you will begin to feel less grief. I am so happy that Lynn was an important influence in your life and that you got to experience the great love she had for you. Take care of yourself. ~ Jo

  4. Love you, Anthony. I'm so glad she got to see the man you've become and that you got to have the joy of each other. Hugs to you and all the Salems,

  5. She sounds like an amazing person and what a blessing to have had her counsel and support in your life.
    Lifting you up in prayer

  6. Thank you, everyone, for your incredible support. I am so grateful for readers like you. May our Lord bless you and, in memory of Lynn, "Walk in your calling!"
