Today is a sad day. Nate Von Niederhausern in our home ward passed away. He was a Husband to Kristy, Father to two little boys, Casey and Clayton ages 3 and 1. He was serving as Elders Quorum President in our ward. He was diagnosed with lung cancer only 3 short months ago. My heart only feels sad at his passing. So sad for Kristy, and so sad for his sweet children. Especially little Casey. I try to envision myself explaining to Payton that daddy isn't here anymore..and CAnnot. I have been dreading his imminent passing for weeks hoping that we would be home. That did not happen. I am happy that he is now out of pain. However I have such a difficult time dealing with the tragedy of it all. I wish I had a healthier mind when it comes to death. I am quite frankly terrified of it. I live in fear of mortality everyday. Which sucks. I am working on it. Hopefully someday I will get there without having thought of it to much.(Do you believe in the secret?) I do. Today I wish I were in Utah. I thought I would be coming home for the funeral. Flights are SOOO exspensive so I will not be able to. Today death, mortality, and living in Dallas Tejas are a real bizatch. Night.
