We are out!

This past weekend we were eliminated from the Calder Cup playoffs. We lost 4 games to 1 to Rockford. Although we wish we could have won it all, we are happy that now I will be in town when the baby is born and not have to scramble to get home. We are pretty optimistic that we will be back for a second year here in Houston, which has not happened in 4 years since we left Utah.
Also, this past week we lost a very close friend in John C Hadfield. For those that were at our ring ceremony he was the one who conducted it. He was my mission president in Chile for over a year and a half. We are not to sure what caused it, but it is crazy to think that this life can end so sudden. He will surely be missed by many including all those that served in the Chile Santiago West Mission. I have many memories with him. He was one of the greatest people I ever met. The worst part about it was that we just had a mission reunion that I was unable to attend days before. I am very thankful for the understanding that I have of Gods plan and why we are here and what happens to us after this life.

I'm glad that you will be home for the baby! And I'm sorry to hear about Bro. Hadfield...I remember meeting him before you came home from your mission...he and his wife were definitely special. It makes you happy to know that he is with his Heavenly Father! Talk to ya later!
