I had a cousin pass away - suddenly and unexpectedly - at his home last week. He was young. In his 50's. I wasn't very close to this cousin, but his death still hurts. He leaves behind an amazing wife, and daughter. His parents, however, I am close to. They are some of my two most favorite people who I have the privilege of calling Aunt and Uncle. It is very heartbreaking that they have to bury a child. No parent should ever have to do this. I did know some of his siblings better than others. His sister is so willing to let us stay at her home while traveling through Albuquerque. Very gracious people. Very loving and kind family all around. I feel the love of the Savior just by being with them.
I find great comfort and peace in knowing that Randy is in a better place. I know he is with a loving Savior. I know his family will see him again. This knowledge doesn't make the pain go away, but it does make it easier to continue on. Robertson family - I love you. I pray for you. I know you miss your sweet husband, father, brother, son so very much, but you will see him again. He is in good hands. You are in good hands.
Etiquette these days isn't what it used to be. Young men who hold open a door for a young lady are few and far between. They're out there, but not as prevalent as they used to be. When I hear a story about a young man who put his great-grandmother above himself, I take notice. It makes me smile. This young man is a stellar example of being someone's sunshine.

I hope I am raising my sons to be as exemplary as this fine young man!
