States of Beings

My mother, Theresa Carman Ward, was Archie Carman’s youngest sister. [Obituaries, “Robert A. Carman, 1931-2010,” 7/8/10,] This makes Bob my first cousin. I never had the pleasure of meeting any of Bob’s immediate family. I wish I had had the opportunity to meet such a wonderful man and servant of our Lord and Saviour. I can’t wait to meet Bob on that glorious day when I who have also been waiting with love for my Lord to appear will finally be with all my relatives and friends in heaven. My condolences to all from your Dawsonville, Georgia cousin.—Mary Agnes Ward Rowan
