Yesterday Nate was buried in the Lake Hills Cemetary in Sandy Utah. Scott and a few family and friends gathered to support Alicia, Anna, Brooklyn, Cami, and Drake.
I am here in Arizona with my parents and brothers and their wives for my Mother’s 80th birthday. Hard when you wish you could be in 2 places at the same time but Nate would want me here with his beloved Grandma and Grandpa strengthening those family bonds❤️.
“In family relationships love is really spelled t-i-m-e, time. Taking time for each other is the key…” Deiter F. Uchtdorf
“Near the end of his life, one father looked back on how he had spent his time on earth. An acclaimed, respected author of numerous scholarly works, he said, Now those children are grown, perhaps with children of their own. ‘Where did the years go?’ they ask. We cannot call back time that is past, we cannot stop time that now is, and we cannot experience the future in our present state. Time is a gift, a treasure not to be put aside for the future but to be used wisely in the present” Thomas S. Monson
Nate’s favorite family quote “Family, It’s about Time” continues to ring in my heart. May we each take the time and effort to strengthen those relationships so that when our loved one is called home we won’t have regrets that we wished we had spent more time together.
If you have regrets Nate would want us to learn from it, don’t dwell on it. There is the gift of repentance and we can choose to change. A loving Savior can heal our hearts and we can look forward with faith that we will see our loved one again. I have no doubt💕
So grateful I had the time with Nate that I did. Love you my forever son until we meet again❤️. Love always Mom
