"New life makes losing life easier to understand." John Mayer

I found out today that one of my friends (known to the theater group at SUU as Amy Webb) lost her husband on Wednesday. His name was Shawn Sivertsen and he is one of the kindest, goofiest, gentlest, most wonderful people I have ever had the privilege to rub shoulders with. My heart breaks for Amy, and for their family. He died after a long battle with cancer, in which he fought to the very end. I can only ask that you keep the Sivertsen and Boulter families in your prayers at this time.

After finding this out I looked at the pictures of my beautiful new niece, TeAnna. She is so perfect, with limitless potential in front of her. There really is a plan to everything, and I am so thankful that we have the ups and downs that balance each other out. I am also thankful that we have the Lord to be there for us when we feel like there are more downs than ups.

My heart breaks for Amy. I hope that she will be able to find some peace during this trying time in her life.

What a perfectly sweet baby. A nice tribute to a nice guy, losing a loved one is never easy- having good friends/family support helps. I will keep Amy in thought and heart.

She is beautiful. My heart goes out to Amy... She's had a rough go of it! It's good to know the Lord has a plan for all of us.

I'm so sorry for your sweet friend. You always know exactly how to pay tribute to something. You bear your sweet testimony so beautifully on your post. My prayers are with you and your friends. On the other end of things... TeAnna is simply stunning and is a good reminder that there is a lot of brightness and hope still out there.

I am so happy that they were married in the temple so that they can be together forever. I sorrow, but know that he is no longer suffering
