Tears shed...

...For [one of] my wonderful cousins, Porter, who passed away last night due to a hiking accident. Before I got the call from my mom, I was having a dream. In the dream, I heard the little jingle for "Hold on to dear life", no joke. And I was crying in the dream. Then the phone rang and it was my mom with the news of Porter. I just want my Aunt and Uncle and their family to know how much I love them and that they're in my thoughts and prayers. I love all of my family and I just want to say I'm so grateful for temples and the blessings of Eternal Families. Where would we be without the gospel in our lives? I love the gospel so much.
I've shed a lot of tears this day thinking about my family - my Aunt and Uncle and the rest of their children. I can't imagine what they're going through. But my heart goes out to you all.
I've been thinking all day that Porter is now with my grandpa, I can imagine that grandpa is teasing him like he used to do with all of us and I can see Porter's cute smile.
Porter, my dear cousin, I love you and I'll be looking forward to the day when we can see you again! Love, Stacey

The same thought occurred to me with Grandpa meeting him and kidding around! I think that Porter can fulfill a mission now!
