The obituary...


Erin G. Kunz 1971 ~ 2011 Our loving husband, father and son Erin Gary Kunz passed away on March 31, 2011 from heart failure. He was born December 26, 1971 in Murray, Utah to George and Karen Murphy Kunz. He married Ellie Mae Michaels on October 10, 1995. Erin was a self taught musician, he played the guitar and piano. He loved hunting, fishing and camping. He is survived by his wife Ellie, children Savannah and Christian Kunz, parents George and Karen Kunz, brothers Scott (Nina) Kunz and Billy Kunz, sisters Annalee (Curtis) White, Shauna Blea, Marge (Paul) Svedas and Marcie Kunz. A celebration of his life will be held on Wednesday from 1-3 p.m.
I don't believe he was a mormon but I have to say that they steped up and really did a great job for the family. (Money was an issue) They gave them a place to 'celebrate his life' and they did it in style.  Awesome folk.

The best comment of the night was from Grandpa George... he kept actually remembering people... didn't you work on my electricity?  You should stop by.  Didn't you do this?  You need to come see me.  To one fellow he said, "You haven't been around for a while.  You KNOW the coffee pot is always full." He looks around at his surroundings and says... "That's the only thing that's missing..."
(Mormon's don't drink coffee ;) 
It was awesome.!! 

I love Grandpa George.

    And about yesterday, the being a boob issue, we ALL have those moments. We wallow, and then we go back to moving forward. They are like rest areas for our soul.
