Thanksgiving is a time of gratitute and thankfulness. This year the holidays are especially hard for our family. We have struggled with the loss of Steve. It is very noticeable at every holiday, party, or event, that he is not here anymore. Steve was the type of person that added a spark to the party. He loved life, and with his quick wit, and great sense of humor, made everything we did a lot more fun. We miss him so much. At times it seems unbearable.

We are grateful for the memories we have with him. We are grateful that we got to spend as much time with him as we did. Steve did everything fast paced, so we feel we really got double time with him.

We are also grateful for our wonderful friends and family. We are blessed to have such great love and support by all. We know we can't do this alone, so we depend on our great friends and family.

I am grateful to have 6 wonderful children. What a blessing and strength they are in my life. They are amazing children with strong testimonies. I am grateful for the Savior who comforts us, buoys us up, and eases our burdens. Our family is especially gratiful for the Plan of Salvation. That brings us great peace.
