On the mind

I've been thinking and praying a lot for this one particular family from the last ward Abe and I were in. I've been thinking what can I do to help! She and her husband had five fabulous kids. They were so involved in the Ward and in the community.

Last Tuesday the Mom was moving the family van under the carport when she accidentally struck her two-year old daughter. 2-year-old Akayla followed her Mom outside unnoticed. Akayla didn't survive the accident.

I saw the news story on KSL that night, Jan 18 and thought that that family had to be in our Stake. Then this past Monday I found out that it was a family that Abe and I knew in our previous Ward and they are in fact still in our Stake. It really hits you hard when something tragic like this happens to someone you know, have had conversations with and have heard them bare their testimony about the gospel on several occasions. These kinds of accidents could happen to any of us at any time.

Please help! The family is in need of funds to help with funeral costs and other expenses related to the tragedy.

I was going through some pics tonight and found these pics of our nieces from our wedding 2 and a half years ago. The girls are so young in these pics. Aren't they the cutest things in the whole world!! Then again I am their Auntie and am totally biased. In fact, my sister-in-law is pregnant right now and i'm so excited to be an aunt once again!!
