In August of 2017, our beautiful, intelligent and humble niece Taiana tragically passed away after her courageous battle with cancer. She was only 18 and had her whole life ahead of her, she had plans to attend BYU and she was the biggest BYU football fan. She always made everyone feel welcome or loved and she would always call me twin because she looks a lot like me when I was younger. She would have people tell her all the time that she looks just like me. She made a huge impact on so many lives and even though she has passed away she has still made an impact. We love and miss her so very much. Her story was shared on the LDS general conference general women's broadcast by Sister Jones. Thank you Nana for teaching us the to have faith in the Lord and trust in his plan!
The end of 2017 was very difficult, my husband ended up hospitalized due to his ongoing health issues. He was in and out of the hospital then came home in January then ended up back in the hospital in March due to more health issues unrelated to the other health issues. He is now doing well and things are getting back to normal. This fall we will have two kids in high school and 3 teenagers!! Life is great, we have a lot to be thankful for and my hubby turned the big 4-0! lol! We are grateful for all that we have overcome and we look forward to the future with optimism.
