The day after the funeral, Mom, Dad, Dave, and the boys headed to Utah with the casket. I had to work, so Gunnar and I caught a ride with Brock on Sunday. Dena, Scot, and Brittany also rode with us. We had a really great time talking and joking. It was very strange taking that drive without a bunch of kids...it went so fast. Gunnar just slept the whole time and nursed when we stopped. It was a really pleasant trip. When we got there we met up with the rest of the family at TGI Fridays (Becky's whole family also drove up). It was fun having the siblings all together in such a small setting/without 20 grandkids. David seemed to be doing fairly well, just a little manic from lack of sleeping and going 90 miles an hour with funeral arrangements. We were all just hoping to give him some support and help take his mind off things a little.

Brock's in-laws have an apartment by the Salt Lake Temple that they let us stay in. The next morning we went to the JSMB for breakfast before heading to the cemetary.
Jenn was buried in Salt Lake Cemetary. The same cemetary where most of the prophets of the church are buried. So many people came to the burial. There were a ton of Bayles and Young family members as well as a bunch of LaCrescenta Transplants. It felt like a LaCrescenta Reunion.

The burial service was very nice. Leticia Strong played the Viola and another friend played the harp. David gave a beautiful dedicatory prayer. Afterwards we all went to a local church for a lunch provided by a local ward.
