It was hard seeing Klint take the news from Eric. I hurt for Klint, but I hurt more for Joel's wife and family. Crazy crazy crazy stuff. Times like these makes me so grateful for the Gospel and the Plan of Salvation and knowing that we can see our friend again since this life is not the end. I keep thinking of Joel's poor wife experiencing the whole tragic incident and losing her husband after less than a year of marriage. It makes me treasure my husband and how much we take this precious life for granted. I'm so glad my husband is here now. And I know it has affected Klint. This morning I kissed him goodbye and started to leave, but Klint called me back into the room to urge me to drive safe.
Joel you will be missed, but you will not be forgotten. When the friends get together a Joel story always comes up. And now when you are talked about we hope that you are laughing with us from the other side. "Thank yuuuuu" for the memories "Lidious" "Justice Jericho" "JL JEEP"...Joel Larson you've been a good friend.
