...IN THE AIR
Mother had a saying for many occasions. "See you in the funny papers"
"Whistling girls and crowing hens never come to very good ends" are just
a couple. Almost everytime someone would say "see you" or "see you
later" Mother would respond "Here, there or in the air." We had a great
discussion of what this might mean. There were two main schools of
thought. Some said it meant 'here' meaning earth, 'there' meaning
heaven, or 'in the air' the rapture of the saints. The correct view espoused
by the eldest brothers, is 'here' this place on earth, 'there' any other place
on earth, or 'in the air' meaning Heaven. When we all get there we can
ask her, PTL.
These pictures were taken in Mom's room at HNH and the Kuhler Funeral Home. I think she looked peaceful and quite lovely given, as Steven said, the ten-year river she had to cross to get to the other shore.
