Another Family Member GRADUATES

My cousin Jody Berg Renstrom graduated from this life last night. I tried to call her last night, now I know why she didn't answer...any news on when the funeral will be? I did talk with her last week and she was feeling miserable had been in the hospital since Dec 12th with pneumonia and RSV, on oxygen 24 hrs. She was ready to go, in her 80s and lived quite the life. In many ways she was like a sister to me in taking me to visit other churches in California when I was a young teen and she was looking for a church. We found the Mormons-not realizing we were already Mormons-at least I was baptized at age 8 in UTah but knowing nothing about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Because of her example and taking me to church I gained a testimony and later attended BYU. She was there for me during the years as I married in the temple, got divorced and started over as a single parent raising my son when I moved back to Utah. Rest in Peace dear Jody with all our family on the other side. You will be missed and are appreciated and loved.
