Donna Solbrekken at 87
Donna, A Great Lady: Wife, Mother,
Grandmother, Great Grandmother
    Robert Metzgar graciously sent me several discs of great artists which he had produced through Platinum Plus Records of Nashville, Tennessee. On the 'Smoky River Boys' there is a song that gripped my heart. The song is called, 'Happy Father's Day, Mother'.
     It was written by a young man whose father had passed away when he was two years of age and his mother only twenty - two. He gives tribute to his mother on Father's Day as well as Mother's Day because she had taught him how to be a boy and a man just like his Dad would have done!
      President Abraham Lincoln stated: “All that that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” Here is good advice  to Dads: “If you want your children to love you, be good to their mother!”
     Today I give tribute to my precious mother who gave herself without reservation together with my dear father, for their six children. They are both with the Lord after having lived the kind of lives that made me want to be a Christian. 
     When I looked for a wife, I wanted her to be like my mother!
    I give tribute today to my precious wife Donna who has been a tower of strength to our family and when I had to be away in my overseas Crusades for long periods of time, Donna was there. I salute her in Jesus' name. Thank you, Darling!
   For mothers everywhere, I say: "I am proud of you all. May the blessings of Almighty God through Jesus Christ our Lord bring peace, joy, health and happiness to every home and family. In Jesus' name, Amen."
