Two years ago today at 6:30 p.m. my mother took her last earthly breath and entered into the celestial presence of her Savior and Lord! My heart rejoices as she, my dad, my daughter and many, many other loved ones dwell in the land of heavenly, eternal sunshine!
Mom began playing the piano at the age of six. She listened to the radio broadcast of the Old Fashioned Revival Hour and learned the style of pianist Rudy Atwood. As a result, she played with the same gusto and passion as her unseen teacher on the radio until the last time she struck a chord in November 2012. Many, many Sundays, Dad would open their church services with the chorus, “Heavenly Sunshine.” I can hear it now. Here’s a link of the OFRH Choir and Rudy Atwood playing the piano. Great memories. Great parents. To God be the glory!!
