In Loving Memory...

On Aug.22,2007 Thern Ward passed away. Although this was a very sad occasion for all of us, there is so much good that will be remembered of him. Grandpa Thern was such a sweet man and loved us all. His kind heart was known by all. He loved little children and esp loved giving kisses to babies. I know he still lives today and is hopefully playing with our babies until it is their time to come to us. Even though he is gone, his legacy still lives on through his grandson Jory and his son Base. Both are amazing men and I see a lot of Grandpa Thern in both of them.
I heard this quote once and since Grandpa's passing, I was all of a sudden reminded of it. "When you were born, you cried, and your family and friends rejoiced. Continue to live your life in such a manner that when you die, your family and friends cry, and you rejoice." I am so grateful for the loving atonement that the Savior provided for us so that we can live with him again. We love you Grandpa Thern!
