Nana's Happy Day... Finally!

My Nana (Maude Halversen) passed away early this morning at 98 years young. She has been a widow for 38 years and has missed Gramps (Roy) every day since he preceeded her in death. She is finally rejoicing! She was the most amazing woman I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. I have wonderful memories throughout my lifetime of her. She spent all of my life except the past eight months in Cedar City. This last year she has been living at an assisted living center in Orem. I was so blessed to visit her each week for a couple of hours and attend Relief Society, help her play Bingo, help her make crafts, walk with her around the facility, help her with her walker, push her in her wheelchair, help her eat, promise her that I would be back soon... I am so glad I learned what life is really about from Maude (Nana) Halversen.

She's Amazing! first attempt at blogging and I want to start by giving props to my oldest daughter Hillary who is a high school Senior this year. She's been playing soccer since she was 5 (she's now 16--17 in 2 months) and has stuck with it through good teams and bad and has been rewarded the past three years playing for Woods Cross High School. She's an amazing player and is well-liked by the whole team. She is a mid-fielder, very fast and super aggressive. I enjoy going to her games and am so proud to sit in the stands and support my amazing daughter!
