My Thoughts are with you . . .

I was shocked when I heard that a friend of ours, Naki Maile, had passed away unexpectedly. He was only 32 years old and leaves behind his beloved wife, Abby, and six beautiful girls.

Have you ever seen a family that just seems to have it all--an amazing marriage, darling children, a burning testimony of the gospel? Well, that's the Mailes. They live their life quietly, not realizing the impact they have on those around them, yet it's there all the same. The evidence of their deep love for one another, the beautiful music they create, the family traditions they share, and their sweet tenderness with their children, among many other things are an inspiring example to all.

Abby and Naki and their sweet family have made an indelible impact on my life that will not ever be forgotten.

A bank account has been set up for much needed donations for the Maile family. You can go to any Wells Fargo and donate to the account under the "Naki Maile Family." A website where you can donate through paypal has also been set up: http://www.nakifamily.com/.

My thoughts are with you, Abby.

My heart is broken for this little family. God bless them. God bless you for giving us a chance to care about another's needs.

It always gives me pause to hear about the passing of a great person... Even more so because of the legacy and family he is leaving behind. My thoughts are with them.
