my dad passed away yesterday evening after a 5 year battle with cancer. i don't really have words at this time to express my feelings adequately. though i am sad, i feel peace. it is the peace that comes from the gospel of Jesus Christ. i know that families are forever. my dad had an incredible impact on those around him. my dad was very funny. i got my love of trivial facts from him. he was very frugal and avoided debt. he was the most honest person i've ever known. you always knew where he stood and that was on the right side. there was no gray area for him. he loves the Lord and loves missionary work. i know he will be very busy on the Lord's errand now that he is on the other side.
my parents were married in the salt lake temple and because of that i can be with them forever. if you would like to know more about how families can be together forever, click here.
