Tragedy

So it's been an emotional weekend for Ethan and me. We knew a few of the people in the plane that crashed on Friday near Moab. They where wonderful people who where good to our family while we were in Cedar City. They will be greatly missed by us and the entire community. As I was reading the Ellsworth family's statement I was touched to read of their testimony that families are forever. I am so grateful for the gospel and for those people who were such wonderful examples of service and love. We are shocked and heartbroken, but we too have a testimony of forever families.

I am so sorry you guys. We were worried that since we saw a Shumway, he would be related to Ethan. I am glad to know everything is ok in that department but know what a shock it must be for Cedar and So.Utah. Even though I don't live there anymore, my thoughts are with all of the families and friends affected by the disaster. Mike has even been concerned too thinking that Keith looks like Ethan. Dad called Clayton on sunday and he cleared everything up. Our prayers are with you all. Hang in there.
