This video is a must see for everyone because we all, at sometime in our lives, have to deal with the issue of forgiveness.

Kalie - Dude, come home after class and we'll go to the beach!

Kristine - dude. it's the week before finals...

My Dad, Kiefer Harris

Kiefer and Carlene Harris
My Dad passed away 5 years ago of Alzheimer's.  I have many happy memories of my Father.  When I thought of him on the anniversary of his passing this past April, I had a feeling of gratitude that he taught me how to love life, and that he, along with my mother, taught me the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  For those teaching, I will be eternally grateful.

Click here or on the above video to see what we showed at my father's funeral luncheon.
My sis-in-law, Christy, made the video and she did a great job capturing the highlights of my father's life.
