In Remembrance

As you may have heard Andrew's uncle Randy, wife Vicky, and kids MacLean and Brittany Whittle were all killed in a plane crash in Burley, Idaho. I just wanted to write a post on my blog expressing gratitude to Randy, specifically, for reaching out to Andrew over the last year. Andrew was so excited to pick Randy and his family up from the Provo airport and I was excited to meet them for the first time. I am so glad that Andrew and Randy were on good terms and that there is no regret. I am thankful for our Heavenly Father's plan of salvation, it really gives us comfort to know that all of this was part of  His amazing plan. There was a great reunion with each other and other members of the family that have passed before. I am also so grateful that no one from their immediate family was left behind, that is a true blessing in itself. We are grateful that they were doing what they loved and that they were united while doing it. It will be hard for extended family to mourn the loss of an entire family, so I ask that you keep all of them in your prayers.
