Bishop Hair: An Incredible Man

This weekend we received some sad news that our bishop had passed away Saturday of an unexpected heart attack. Bishop Hair has been the bishop of our Married Student Ward for the past two years and has been such an amazing influence in our lives. Kevin has served in the bishopric with him for the past year and has become really close to him. We are truly fortunate to have gotten to know Bishop Cal Hair so well and we will truly miss him. Bishop Hair was a man of few words but who always made you feel very welcomed and loved. He was always the first to know of any problems or needs in the ward and was such a down to earth man. Bishop Hair and Sister Hair were some of the first people to visit us in the hopital when Kassidy was born and have been like surrogate grandparents to her this past year. In short, we will truly miss this wonderful man and all he did for us, but we know that he is in a better place and would want us to keep on keeping on. We love you Bishop Hair!

Hey, Travis heard from Heather Turner this morning. We are devastated as well. So sad and a shock to hear about it. Let us know if we can do anything, we truly loved him too. He was a great man and we are praying for Sister Hair and their family. Oh, and I just noticed your blog from the facebook page, so I'm adding you to our friends list. Love ya!

Hey Robyn,
I came across your blog this morning and I was shocked. (I don't know if you remeber us we moved from the ward last May.) Anyway, I can't believe Bishop Hair is gone. That is just crazy. I hope sister Hair is doing all right. If you talk to her tell her she is in our prayers.
By the way, your daughter is a cutie. You hadn't even had her yet when we moved, I can't believe how big she is now. Wow, time flies. What a cute family!
