In Loving Memory...

Nathan's father, Stephen McAllister, passed away on Christmas Eve, early in the morning. A second heart attack proved too much for his diminished reserves. We are sad he is no longer physically with us. We are grateful for the comfort of the gospel. We are grateful for family and love and friendship. It has been a time of sweet reflection on Dad's life and on the beauty of the plan of salvation. Love you, Dad. We will miss you.

Oh Jenny, I am so sorry! Please give Nathan my condolances. I can't imagine losing a parent - even knowing what we know about eternal families; it doesn't take the sting out of missing those we love! I haven't even lost a grandparent yet. My poor husband has lost everyone - his only living relatives are his mother (who isn't really his mother anymore) and he has an Aunt in Omaha still. Even his only brother has passed on. I am going to be extra grateful for my family! I hope your mother-in-law is handling things well. It must be a comfort to have your family so close!

You and your family are still in our prayers. I know that sometimes just getting back to normal life after something like this is sometimes the very hardest part! We sure love you all and we are so grateful for the few minutes we got to see you over the break.
