A Great Day!

In the LDS (Mormon) Faith, when someone who passes away very young, like Marcus, we are able to do Temple ordinances that they weren't able to accomplish in this life. For Valentines Day Yesterday, John and I went to the Temple and did that work for Marcus. We felt his presence so strong and knew that this is what he really wanted and needed. John had felt very strongly that Marcus really wanted us to do this for him so that he could go on and do work that God needs him to do. I know that Marcus is serving as a missionary on the other side of the Vail, and is helping us here on earth as well. It was truly a Beautiful Day.

How comforting for you to be able to do things in the name of Marcus. Find comfort wherever you can get it at this time. Bless you and your family. Sandy from MD

That is so neat Karen! I'm glad you had such a special experience.

Now that you've done Marcus' temple work done, he can truly serve as Martin's companion because they are both endowed elders. (Gives me chills to think about that.)

What neat things you have written. I cry for you and Nancy every day for the things that you have been called on to bear. I love you. I support you and try to help in any way that I can. I'll be glad when we can go to Logan again and be with you again. Hang in there, just know that you are loved by a Heavenly Father. Love, MOM
