"Because life is fragile and death inevitable, we must make the most of each day."
President Thomas S. Monson

Even now we realize how much everybody around us helped, and I do mean everyone. It is very difficult to see the impact on others when life seems to have stopped for you. People that we did not talk to for years showed up to offer their condolences. Almost a hundred people wrote letters in support of Kyle. Church members treated the wood on our playground, so the girls could play on it. Our brother in law mowed our lawn for a month. Things that we had wanted to do to our house were being done simply because someone heard through the grapevine that we wanted it. People came to our house and cleaned it, and when we were robbed a few days later they came back and cleaned it again. There were many that even sheltered us from the media so that we could mourn in peace. We are so thankful for the love and the service. We are especially thankful for each and every person that dropped everything to be there to help us through those two days. It is amazing, you would think people didn't actually have jobs. =) I am kidding of course. Honestly, we do not really know everything that everybody did, and this blog is not big enough to list them all, but we want to tell you that you will be blessed for all you did for us.
