At any moment our lives could be taken away from us. It is so important to be the best we can everyday.
Last night I received some sad news that a member of my amazing bishopric had passed away from a heart attack. I could not believe it. He was young, healthy, and such a good man I just did not believe this had happened. I feel so much sadness for his family. I know he is in a wonderful place, but it is still so hard to think of the pain and loss that his family will have in their hearts everyday for the rest of their lives.
Brother Brown and I became very good friends when he was over the committee that Sophie and I were in charge of. He was always so fun and easy to talk to. He would sneak in the kitchen to get some food (on Fast Sunday!) and stay and chat with us about everything we had on our minds. Not only was he a great friend, but he was a great man of God. I looked up to him in so many ways. I am so lucky and thankful for the time I had to know him. The 13th ward will not be the same without him. I miss him already.
My thoughts and prayers are with Brother Brown's wife and children at this time. Not a moment has gone by today that I have not thought of them. As sad and hard as this is, I know without a doubt that Brother Brown is in a better place than here on earth.
Thank you Brother Brown for being the amazing person you were.
You will be missed.

She was one of the 13 personalities announced today for the new season of "Dancing with the Stars" and is already likely favorite, as the other two Olympic gold medalists who've competed on the ABC show were winners, Apolo Anton Ohno and Kristi Yamaguchi. Misty May-Trenor's partner will be Maksim Cherkovskiy."

It was a fun time!
I have a really awesome bishopric.
They are the best!
After the BBQ we watched some Olympics.
Then headed to Yogurt Stop of course.
Yummy as always.
It was a fun night!

How amazing are these athletes?
They make me want to be a little stronger, a little faster, and all together better.
Phelps is amazing, another gold last night. Almost to his 8 golds
May and Walsh. Need I say more?
And, gold and silver in women's gymnastics? Pretty awesome!
The US is now the top medal holder. Let's keep it up!
Seriously, if you have not watched any of these events you should! It is worth it. Even if it is just for a few minutes. The excitement cheering on the US is well...exciting!
