I did not know her that well, but her impact on my life is one that I will never forget. I remember when Kenny and I first moved into this house, and into this ward. The ward was so big and overwhelming I wasn't sure if we would ever find our place. I was sure that we would be lost in a ward of 600 people and never fit into the cliques that were already formed. But Lanae (Sis. Peck) proved me wrong. I remember her sweet smile and kind words as she welcomed us into the ward. I remember seeing her at Fry's and her stopping to talk to us to see how things were going. Such a small act, but one I will never forget. I don't know why her passing has hit me so hard, maybe because she was so young, only 40, I can't imagine loosing my mom at such a young age. My heart aches for her young children who now have to go one without her. I will forever be grateful for her kindness and welcome spirit. She was truly a gem.
On a happier note, this event will be happening SOOOO soon!
