"Everywhere in nature we are taught the lessons of patience and waiting. We want things a long time before we get them, and the fact that we wanted them a long time makes them all the more precious when they come." Joseph F. Smith
We love uncle Derek. Elayna loves playing the piano and sitting with him. Lilia loves playing with him and the dogs he brings with him. We look forward to seeing him home and will miss him while he is deployed.
