The year ended with heartbreaking sadness, and amid the overwhelming flood of emotions that accompanies the loss of a father as wonderful as mine, I find myself looking back and becoming increasingly grateful for the amazing memories I made with my father. He taught me so much, and became a father and dear friend to Alan. I want to say thank you for everyone who expressed their heartfelt sympathies. I cannot say just how much your support meant to my family. I am grateful for the gospel, for I have felt the sweet hand of the Lord carrying me in many capacities right now. I have had many moments too precious to mention, and know that the Lord is aware of our needs and comforts his children with peace and love during our most trying of times. As the new year begins I struggle to think of any resolutions, as they seem so irrelevant right now. However, I cannot stop thinking about ways that I can improve who I am, and become a better person, mother, Latter Day Saint, and friend because of the influence of my father. There are no words to explain just how much we will miss him. But we will always share and cherish the memories we made. Thanks Dad, you were more amazing than you will ever know. We ask that if any friends or loved ones have memories to share, please post them at keithmsteinermemorial.blogspot.com.
