A blessed gift - Thank you Deyton!

Over the past couple of days I have enjoyed the opportunity to reconvene with my family during this holiday season. Of course the joys have giving and receiving are great and do have their place - however, one moment in particular comes to mind that I am extremely grateful for. Yesterday evening I had the pleasure of joining my family for a 20 minute personal gift to and from my nephew Deyton Kash Sorensen (who died at 5 days old due to heart complications in July) at his burial site in Washington, UTAH. I was asked to sing for the family that evening standing at his grave - Silent Night - and while I was singing it my family and I realized how relevant the song is to us at this time - "Sleep in heavenly peace, Sleep in heavenly peace". My whole family began to cry out of both a sadness and a happiness for where Deyton is today. A blessing and a joy to truly experience - sadly these words do not express enough the feelings that were shared amongst all during that 20 minutes time with Deyton.

Thank you Deyton for being there and for giving all of us such a wonderful and blessed gift. We love you buddy!

I hope your holiday season just as beautiful. Enjoy your holiday!
