I'm so sad

My heart is full of sadness right now. My wonderful boss Norven Storrs passed away yesterday. He was not only my boss but was also my friend. I have worked for Norven for almost 16 years. But I have known Norven and his family for a bit longer than that, as Norven & his wife are in my parents ward at church. So I knew him from church before working for him.

Norven was the best boss anyone could have. He is not only my boss, but Mike's & Brandon's as well. We all work for Norven. So we will all miss him terribly. The world will not be the same without Norven. My life is better for knowing him and not just because I worked for him. I only hope that someone can say that about me when I die.

My heart aches for Norven's family as I know they loved him so much & he loved them. Family was so important to him. So I know even though I am hurting, his family is hurting more. Please keep the Storrs family in your prayers.

At least as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints we know that families are forever. Marriage and families don't end at death if you are sealed in the temple. They are eternal. So Norven's family should & will take comfort in that. As they are an eternal family.

I know that we will see Norven again and I know that he is in a better place, and I can take comfort in that, but right now there is a giant hole in my heart.

Take care Norven, we love you & we will miss you. Till we meet again.

I'm sorry for your loss. I am not mormon or a member of the church but have some very close and dear friends that are. And they have taught me that in your faith you are together forever as you stated. So, he will be waiting to see you when your time is due. Until then you should just know he is in a better place.

Kim I was so shocked to hear about Norven. I am so sorry, my thoughts & prayers are with you & your family as well as The Storrs. I can't imagine what they are going through. I know they were very close so they can take comfort in each other at this time.
Love you,

I am so sorry for your recent loss! Everyone has their way of coping with death. I plant a little garden in memory, so I have a place to visit. Take care.
