The reason for the Blog update delay

As most of you might know our son-in-law, Clint Layton, passed away on March 6.  He had been struggling with leukemia for a year, and after many miracles that inclulded a successful bone marrow transplant, they found more cancer in his stomach and there was nothing they could do for him.  After a quick memorable trip to Disneyland with his family, Clint passed away 4 days after they returned home.  I flew to Utah to be with our daughter and our family at this sad time.  President Walton stayed behind in Portugal.  At this time we are so grateful for the gospel and for our extended family here in the Porto Mission.
