Donation fund for Kristin Wells
Kristin Wells is Randy's wife and the only surviving member of the family. She is 20 weeks pregnant and just found out last week she is expecting a baby girl.
Randy was an avid outdoorsman, who loved laughing and was an amazing father to his two children and a loving husband to Kristin. Randy was a beacon in the community, serving as bishop of the Mount Jordan 3rd Ward. The Wells' are widely beloved and Kristin is a friend to everyone she meets.
Kristin is now tasked with the heartbreaking job of planning three funerals at once. Please help with the financial burden she is now facing on top of her devastating loss. Anything is appreciated.
Every penny raised will be given to Kristin Wells.
The love, prayers, and dedication to the search for our dear Randy(41), Asher(8), and Sarah(3) is a great display of how incredible they were -- so amazing that not enough words exist to describe all that they brought to touch the hearts and leave an impression with everyone that was so lucky to know them. Our hearts are breaking for our sister Kristin as she is facing the reality of loss of her world -- her perfect husband and two babies -- and being 22 weeks pregnant with a baby girl. This is hard, but we know that Kristin has the loving support and network of people here. And we know her husband and kids are walking beside her through this. We can't even begin to express how full we are in our hearts with love for her. Our family is forever in gratitude to those who sent prayers, came and physically gave time and efforts to the search, and all those who continue to give. This GoFundMe is only one additional way for us to continue to help bear some of the burden Kristin is carrying. Thank you for your donations.
My heart breaks for what you are going through. The what ifs and they whys will certainly haunt you. I am quite certain it will be the truth the gospel brings which will carry you through to the other side of all of this, but in the meantime, allow yourself to grieve: IN MY GRIEF Let me spend some time in the shadows, let me hide my face from the sun, let my tears flow down unheeded, with no comfort from anyone. Don’t tell me I’ll see them again, please don’t talk about tomorrow, for right now my heart is breaking, and I must hold tight to this sorrow. Perhaps on another day somewhere as I once again let in the light, I will feel their memory around me, and yet know I will soon be all right. Oh yes, I’ve known all the answers, I have spoken of heaven’s great shore, but now as this grief surrounds me, I can't see the same as before. So leave me alone in the shadows, as I hide my face from the sun, and my tears flow down unheeded, with no comfort from anyone. © Forrest Phelps-Cook
I am not able to donate anything, the one thing I feel that I can do for her and family is to remember them in our Family prayers that they can be blessed and comforted by this tragic loss. Heaven has gained 3 beautiful spirits, there work here on earth must have been completed, as tragically as this may be.
Kristin, Our hearts are breaking for you and your loss. You will be in our prayers for a long time. May you feel the love of our Heavenly Father as you begin this journey. I have such fond memeories of your laugh and smile back in school. You are such a light and I hope you know how many people are praying for you right now. Stephanie Hammond Bletzacker

I heard of your family's loss, and I wanted to express my condolences. Love and light to Kristin and to all those who are facing this most unimaginable difficulty right now. It may never make any sense to those left behind why such events take place during our lifetimes, and why some are left to go on in the face of such difficulty. I am so very sorry that you are in this experience, It is great to see how this tragedy has rallied the community and even strangers and may these words comfort you, bring your strength, lessen your pain and your heartache if even for a moment. As days go by may the offerings of Love, donations and support from family friends and strangers be a lighthouse in this storm.
