My house is the hub of my family as my nearby children and a few of my 23 grandchildren buzz in and out of my home.
I have been a widow since early 2011. My husband of 48 years, died of a rare cancer.
I have discovered that the death of a loved one is neither final nor heartbreaking. I have great comfort in the gospel and the plan of salvation.
Way back at the dawn of time I was into camping, hiking and roughing it. But, sorry to say, I now would prefer to sleep in a comfy bed, stay away from stairs and strenuous hikes and would prefer the comforts of a cozy cabin or rustic resort.
I love any sport that I can watch comfortably as long as BYU is one of the teams or one of the players got his or her start at BYU. I look forward to the Olympics and try to watch as much as possible.
I love to travel which has given me the opportunity to meet new people and experience different cultures.
My husband and I served a proselyting mission in South Florida, and a Family History Library mission during the Olympics. For several years we served at the MTC in Provo. We were planning on putting our papers in for another mission. Then he was diagnosed and in less than three months he was gone. The Gospel is the anchor in my life and my testimony grows daily with each new experience and opportunity to serve.
My mantra in life is, "It'll all work out!"
