Thank You

A heartfelt thanks today to those who fought so that I could have the freedoms I have today.
Many made the ultimate sacrifice.

Our hearts were wrenched this year close to home when one of our own in our ward (local LDS congregation) gave up his life in Alfghanistan two months ago. My heart goes out to his sweet young wife, his little girl, and his beloved parents and brothers. He didn't have to go, he didn't have to be where he was, but because of the kind of man he is, he faced great danger and paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Thank you SO much. May God bless your family and bring them sweet comfort this day.

Happy Anniversary to the Standages!

I am so sorry for the family in your ward. My daughter lives in Colorado Springs a has a lot of military families in her ward--and several of her friends have husbands who are away. Their safety is a constant concern.

I am a Patriotic Boob. True story! Whenever I see a serviceman or woman, I am in awe. Their devotion and strength humbles me.
We are so blessed to live in the USA.
