My mom Evelyn+her great grand daughters (l-r) Heather+Emilee
In a recent Deseret News article, it reports Pres. Thomas S. Monson-new prophet of LDS Church, spoke at the funeral of Sis. Faust (wife of Pres. James Faust of First Presidency) and said to the Faust family: ”President and Sister Faust won’t be very far away. You can feel their presence, and they will come when you need it the most…Your grandparents will be looking after you.” Comforting words to the grieving family as both Pres and Sis. Faust died in the last year.
It brings to my mind the question, where do our loved ones’ spirits go after they die? A friend of mine whose daughter died recently, said her daughter confirmed to her that the veil separating us is very thin. I think many of us have had experiences that confirm this. Who better to be a guardian angel than a beloved grandparent or parent. It’s comforting to know that family ties continue on both sides of the veil called "death". We remember and honor their lives, they watch over and protect us. Families are truly forever.
