Hats off to Amelia for making this happen! Let's hope something good comes out of this for Dad!

Sassy said...

WOW! And I thought Bill's picture {painted of course by Alan Garns} in the Ensign was very cool...now T.V. as well....pretty neat stuff...and what an awesome and interesting job...even if you did have to get up at three in the morning...is that an hour on the clock? We will tune in for sure...

You looked absolutely lovely tonight! Good luck with the future surgeries and whatnot...not fun I'm sure but hopefully Bill will be fixed up in no time!

I watched. I cried. I prayed (like usual) for Bill.

PS- You looked beautiful and your home looked beautiful. They really think you are a bomb pianist.

Watched it. Loved it. Totally cried. Your family is seriously incredible.

julie said...

I saw you! You guys were great and I hope and pray a miracle worker was watching too and knows just how to fix it! Best to you all in 2009!

Hugs,
Julie

I just watched the clip online and it makes me sad to think that his pain makes him feel like he is at a stand still and not progressing. I know that everything happens for a reason but it's hard to think that when it's your family. I will continue to pray for Bill that he will be able to overcome the pain.

Hi Stephanie,
I found you blog from blogging. LOL
I just happened to see fox 10 news and wow, what a story. My hubby at the age of 37 has back problems also. Wow, that is just so amazing what you all have been through. I had tears in my eyes, watching this story and seeing you cry.
I am Michelle Aguilar from SBE, and card crazy or I mean love notes.
you may or may not remember me.
my husband owns a home in mexico and we were talking in class once.
Well, I miss all of your daughters working for SBE and someone said Amanda had her baby boy. I knew she was pregnant and I think I left a comment. OOPs, my memory.
well I made sandalloons for Ambers 1st daughter.
Ok, well just wanted to say the story touched our hearts, and here is wishing you all better joys adn days ahead.

Maybe something too eventually will work for my husband.
take care and we shall keep you all in our prayers, for healing

We thought Fox did a nice job with the piece. Bill is always so well spoken. We enjoyed your piano playing. Hopefully 2009 will bring some answers and relief.
