The Hokanson's

In a previous blog I told you about my friend Kelsey's dad. Things weren't getting any better or any worse. Yesterday Kelsey calls me when she got off work. I thought she was calling to see what I was doing, so I yell in excitement that it's spring break only to not hear a happy answer on the other end. I hear Kels crying. I immediately asked what was wrong. Through the tears, Kels somehow managed to get the words out that her dad passed away that morning. My heart sank! I didn't know what to think. I can't even imagine what Kels is feeling. When Kels got home we shed many tears together and talked about it. After several hours and tears Kelsey went home with her brothers to be with their mom. They are all doing pretty well considering the circumstances. I am amazed at Kelsey's strength! She is such a great friend and I know that I can count on her for anything. Right now they are making funeral plans and spending time together as a family. I think a few of us from Salt Lake are going to go up to the funeral on Monday.

Kels I want you to know I love you and am always here for you! You are amazing! I love you!
