Nick's Farewell Dinner

We can't believe the time has finally come for Nick to leave on a mission.  But we are oh, so proud!! It seems like yesterday we were running wild through the yard, catching snakes, building sand tunnels, and exploring the mountains as children. We are proud of the young man that he has become.  We are proud of his decision to serve a mission. Of course, as his family, we are biased, but there is not a brother out there who has a stronger testimony, more of a gentlemen, a harder worker, or more determined to accomplish all that he puts his mind to.   We are proud of his choices. 

On September 14, 2014, Nick gave his farewell talk on how important faith is in each and every one one of our lives, and how much faith has impacted the leaders of this gospel throughout the generations.  Through faith the gospel has been restored to each and every one of us. We are blessed to have that gospel in our lives.  The people of Brazil are going to get a great missionary.  His love and testimony are going to touch the lives of those he serves and potentially plant that seed of faith in their hearts.  We are sure going to miss him, miss his humor, miss his stories, and even his orneriness, but we know the great things he is going to do in Brazil.

It has been a big year for our family!! First, Chris & Stephanie, got married and we couldn't have been more excited and happy for them!  Then, Nick got his mission call, and again we were so excited as a family.  And, finally, Cory and Tanessa got married!  We have been blessed to have such a fun year before Nick leaves to Brazil.

We wanted all those that came to Nick's farewell and those who brought food to know how grateful and thankful we are to you.  We were overcome with joy as we seen all the support we had that day.  We are lucky to have each and everyone of you in our lives.  You have all impacted our lives for the better.  It was such a great happy day with family and friends.  We love you all, we appreciate all the support you have graciously shown our family over the years. We can't wait to hear all about Brazil and the people Nick will be serving.  Thanks again to everyone who made Nick's farewell a day to remember!
