Get Some Kleenex Ready...

This story has reached the deepest parts of me today.  I don't even know these sweet people, but there I was, reading along, sobbing my eyes out.  This one his way too close to home for me - and maybe it's good to be reminded every now and then how temporary life is.  I'm grateful today for my knowledge of life after death and the principle of eternal families.

I found this last night, and bawled my eyes out, then kissed my babies extra. Thank goodness for the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

Thank you for posting this. It reminds me of how important our children and spouses are. Forget the little things and just focus on the important ones.

I just read that... so humbling and heartbreaking. It really made me reflect on the things I take for granted, the things I "keep from" my sweetheart (drive-thru runs, etc.) (that my dh would be fine with, I'm just embarassed of!) I'm so sorry for their loss and so appreciative of the amazing testimony they share.

I DO know these people and like everyone else, I was really affected by this news. It still breaks my heart. So grateful for my knowledge of the plan of salvation, that families are forever.♥

They are an amazing family. His account of his wife could not be more accurate. Wendy is or was my husbands wife. She has always amazed me and still continues to do so! It really does make you want to enjoy every minute with your families even more than you did before!

I started telling Dave about this and he already knew all about it, it was at the hospital he works at, his partner was there (not involved, but there)...crazy. Soooo sad.

The husband was a business friend of my husbands. I've met both him and his wife. We both had a hard time with the sad news. SO grateful for eternal families.

I meant to say my husbands COUSIN. Yikes. Hope you all realized the typo!

I grew up two houses away from Wendy and can attest to the fact that she was an inspirational woman! When she and Denny moved out of state for him to go to Chiropractic school my hubby and I were just buying our first home and she gave me their dining room table. I think of her each day as I wipe away my kiddos messes! She was an amazing mother, wife, and friend. She lived an amazing life. I consider myself lucky to have known her!
