President asked me to write a letter to you all my thoughts and feelings about the Plan of Salvation ~ The Plan of Happiness. Our Heavenly Father is so merciful to have created a plan of us to potentially return to His presence and to have the opportunity to live with those we love so much for eternity. I know with all my heart that we will all see her again. As it says in Doctrine & Covenants 130:2 We will have the "Same Sociality" that we do here. And if you look in the footnotes, it clarifies that it's taking specifically about families. The only thing that is different is that it will be "coupled with eternal glory" which we don't know how.
Today I actually had a spiritual experience about Ommie and some of my angels on the other side of the veil that is so sacred I cannot share it will all of you but it was such a tender experience - it brought tears to my eyes!! I know that our loved ones are near - the Lord is so merciful to let me have this experience - I know we will see all of our loved ones again some day!!

Also some thoughts and feelings about my Ommie. As I know we are all very aware, Ommie had some of that German Sass and Spunk running through her veins!! That's not all she had though. I can't think of a time when I ever got away without a hug and a kiss on the cheek. We always felt loved. She was one of the most recent pioneers in our family.
Though she never walked across the plains, she did bring her family across the ocean to make a better life for them. Little did she know that her sacrifice would effect generations to come. We know she endured unspeakable things and made unreal sacrifices that we will never fully understand. But she did it for all of us, for her posterity.
We can now worship & live how we please. She has caused blessings to be brought to generations and generations to come. I'm so grateful for her and her sacrifices!! We are all so blessed to have her as our Ommie and be able to be with her forever!! I hope we all can appreciate her more!!
