My mother, Leslee Smith, left us about three and a half hours ago. She left an unfathomably wide and deep void in this world and in the lives of her family, but she has gone ahead of us to Heaven, where we will all see her again one day.

Everything our family was, is, and ever will be, is all thanks to her.

Also...get this:

My brother Charles, who currently lives in Sioux Falls, was here for Thanksgiving. He'd flown up here and was planning to fly back, only he ended up missing his return flight as his alarm(s) didn't go off due to the fact that his phone had died the night before. As it turned out, there were no other flights that day, so he ended up driving my dad's car back instead.

So it was that car that he drove back here yesterday. He and my other brother, Peter, figured out later that if he had flown back...that is, if his phone hadn't died that night, forcing him to drive...his flight would not have gotten in until after Mom was already gone.

And our aunt Beth, who carried us all through so much of the past two days, was only in town because her mom's friend had died a few days ago, and his funeral was the day before my mom got out of the hospital.

The moral of this story is that our pitiful plans can never compare to God's perfect plan.
