My name is Lorna Moffett, daughter of Lydia Washburn and Ben H. Moffett, formerly of Provo, Utah.
My mother was a student of Lorna Call Alder at BYU and she loved this woman dearly. In fact, I am named after your mother!
I was surprised to see her obituary in the newspaper, as I don't take a paper and rarely check the obituaries, but just happened to one day and I am so very glad that I did. I had NO IDEA that Lorna Call Alder was still living during much of my life. I would definitely have made it a priority to pay her a visit - to search out where she lived. I always wanted to meet this grand woman of whom I had heard so much about.
My mother went to BYU with a broken heart from being orphaned and from the break-up of a relationship with a young man. I am sure that the love that your mother emulated, nourished my mother and helped her through some very difficult times. My mother became a school teacher, and a good one. She had a good role model - Lorna Call Alder.
I remember her sister Fulvia Dixon Law as she was in a dinner group with my parents when I was quite young.
It is heart-warming to know that through the gospel of Jesus Christ we are assured that your dear mother lives. She is progressing and happy and best of all, she will be reunited with each of you on a promised day in the future. I know, in my heart, that she and my mother have re-newed their acquaintance in their new heavenly home. Life and love continue. "Sweet IS the peace the gospel brings."
I would love to correspond with anyone - everyone in your family. I would love to meet you. Please contact me at 801-290-2448 or email: email@example.com
God be with you at this tender time.
All my love, Lorna Moffett
