The community-wide memorial service for my mother, Bessie Wilson, has been set for Oct. 14, 2010, at the Nazarene Church in Moscow. There will be a 45 minute song service starting at 1 pm, in which we will listen to or sing some of my mother’s favorite hymns. As one who longed for Heaven, she had started picking out hymns for this event in 1961, perhaps prematurely. The memorial service proper will begin at 2 pm., to be followed by a time of fellowship together afterward. All are welcome.
Our family deeply appreciates the expressions of condolence and sympathy that we have received from many of you with regard to my mother’s homecoming. She was a remarkable woman, and I bless God for her.
