The Day We Lost a BeLOVED Mother and Grandmother

November 16, 2011 is a day we will never forget.

Four years too long!

It doesn't matter if it has been four years, five years, ten years... we won't get over losing you! You were a great wife, mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother.

We chose Averi's middle name after you! Averi Jayne Flint! Oh how I wish our little girl could grow up knowing you!

Losing your mother (mother-in-law) isn't something that you just get over. Each year you are gone it almost makes it harder. Harder in the sense that we can't believe it has really been that long. 

I remember her soft spoken, caring ways. She was such a hard working woman who put her children's needs before her own. She loved her children more than anything else. I loved seeing the way the she looked at all of her children from Greg all the way down to Brigham. She had a special way of making all eight of her children feel like they were the "favorite child!" She supported and loved her children in all of their decisions whether she agreed with them or not. She is a great example of what a parent should be. 

Thank you Jayne Sorenson Flint for raising your children the way you did! You raised them to be respectful, kind, and loving. You raised them to be independent, strong, and hardworking. 

Thank you for raising Steve to be the wonderful man he is! I owe it all to you!!

Below are pictures of Jayne and the ones she loved most! Jayne and her family throughout the years. 
(If the picture is not tagged it's because I'm not sure which child it is.)
