My amazing grandmother Lova

Lova Beckstead Royce Allen
January 31, 1920- February 7, 2008

My sweet, gracious, kind, loving, elect and very thoughtful grandmother returned to the arms of our Heavenly Father this past week. She lived a great life, full of sincere kindness and joy! She was always thinking of others and striving to do what is right! I have enjoyed living with her for the past 15 years or so. She has made a tremendous impact on my life and I can only try each day to be as she is!
I have many sweet memories of her and am very grateful for the knowledge of the Plan of Happiness! I know I will see her again!
Yesterday was her funeral here in South Jordan, Utah. There were nearly all 28 grandchildren there to remember and honor her, as well as many of the great grandkids! I flew in last Friday (the 8th) and will be in Utah until the 19th.
Giovanni was unable to be with us due to work and a trip to New York, and we did miss him!
Things have been busy around the house as visitors and relatives have come to visit or to take care of grandma's things. It is late and I am tired. I have other things I would like to share, but will do it another time. I just wanted to let you all know what was going on with us! We love and appreciate all of your support!

We will all miss her. It was good to see you the other day too...I wish it was under different circumstances though.

Isn't the knowledge of the Gospel such a blessing. It's wonderful to know that we have our eternal families.
Love ya and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Happy Valentine's Day.

Although I only knew her for a very short time, I can say that she was amazing. I loved her testimony and her sweet spirit. How blessed you are for having the time you had with her and your very special relationship with her. She loved you very much, that was evident.
