God Be With You Till We Meet Again
I live in downtown Salt Lake City and am fortunate to be a 5 minute walk away from temple square. Because of that I am able to go to Music and the Spoken Word each Sunday. If you don't know, the Mormom Tabernacle Choir sings God Be With You Till We Meet Again, at the end of each broadcast, well here is a little memory about that song...when dad was released from being the stake president in Escalante many years ago, several of us siblings were able to go down and be there for that stake conference. During the meeting he requested the closing song be changed to God Be With You Till We Meet Again, as it was one of his favorites. Well, it has been one of mine since then, but it has much more meaning now for me as we approach a time when it will be true for us as a family. Anyway, when I hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sing that song each week, it brings tears to my eyes because it reminds me of being in that church meeting with mom and dad as well as knowing that eventutally we will be singing and having those thoughts about dad. I know he will be wanting us to think of him giving us that advise because he loves us and cared deeply for our family and that we will be meeting him again.
