Anne, I remember your mother telling me of an experience she had in researching her family. Your mother had spent the day researching and felt like she had completed a family for sealing. When she went to bed that night, your mother could not sleep. The mother of the family she had researched was not content and happy. Your mother finally got up and reviewed her research work. She found an infant daughter that she had overlooked. Your mother added the baby girl to the family record for sealing to the family. When your mother finally retired in the wee hours, she felt the mother's joy and peace that her whole family would be together.
Your stories continue to inspire me. I have put into motion my mother's work, who passed away a year ago. (Baptism/Confirmation in Seattle Temple last weekend, our son baptizing one of our daughters, and tonight I did the initiatory work in Pocatello Temple. It will all be complete, shortly. What a joy to participate in this great work.
