I am grateful for the five years I got to know Mary Hays,
For her immediate welcome to the family,
(While we were dating Robb took me to meet everyone after a BYU football game and his grandparents insisted I go on the family height chart in the garage)
For the wonderful men she helped shape,
And for the time I got to spend enjoying her jokes and being strengthened by her testimony.
She left behind her husband, four children, fifteen grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren with three more on the way.
But I know we will all be together again. We were sealed together in the Temple for eternity and that knowledge eases the sting of death.
