Jake and I taught Kayson’s nursey class. He truly was a little light in the group. He was always there blanket in hand – I’m positive that never came one time without it :) – It was evident that his parents taught him how to love the gospel. It showed as he would answer every question, sing every song, and tell us little stories of life at home with his family. He was always so kind and loving towards the other kids. He had such a gentle heart. Some of my favorite times with Kayson came in the last hour of primary. As soon as the books were pulled from the closet he would grab a few and come sit on my lap. He wanted me to read book, after book, after book. So that’s what we did! He never lost interest. He was so happy and content just to sit and listen to me read. We sure love this little guy! He will be missed here on earth but I know that he had far great work to attend to on the other side of the veil. Kayson will forever be in our hearts and in our minds until we get to meet him again. We love you bud!

Wow, I cannot imagine how painful this must be for you. I suspect there are only a few things in life more difficult than what you’re facing now. I am truly sorry for you and I hope you feel the lifted or at least sustained by the prayers of everyone for you.

I am so heart sick over this. i just read it through a post on a friend’s page. I am so sorry. Knowing that families are forever must be helpful, but I grieve for your families ‘loss’ at this time and will pray for you.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, might, mind and strength…..Very difficult sometimes when the trial is so huge.
