Tenzin's obituary

Tenzin Christopher Rich was born on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 @ 7:37 p.m. to loving parents Zachary and Christel Rich at McKay Dee Hospital.  He weighed 7 lbs, 6 ozs and was 20 inches long.
Tenzin’s family was blessed with him for 11 short days before he returned to his Heavenly Father’s loving arms on October 29th, 2016 at 9:23 p.m. at Primary Children’s Hospital of heart complications.
Tenzin enjoyed being snuggled by his mom and dad, older brothers, Treyson Lee Rich, 11 yrs, Tagg Zachary Rich, 8 yrs, and Thatcher Roger Rich, 4 yrs old.  Tenzin was also very loved by his grandparents, Roger and Gwen Rich, of Morgan, Utah, and Jim and Shirlee Wilkerson, also of Morgan, Utah. 
Tenzin was very blessed to have 4 living Great Grandparents, W Lee and Veloy Dickson, LuAnn Rich and Ellen Wilkerson.  These Grands and Great Grands were very involved in his short little time here on earth and loved him to the fullest extent.  He also was cuddled and loved by many aunts and uncles and cousins.
Tenzin will always be his parents precious baby and the little brother to Treyson, Tagg and Thatcher and they will hold him again in Heaven one day.
The family would like to give a special thanks to the wonderful Life Flight team and the CICU Cardiac Physicians and team at Primary Children’s Hospital for taking such gentle care of our little Tenzin.

"The Crown without the Conflict"

Tenzin - 9 days old

Our sweet baby grandson Tenzin Christopher Rich passed away last evening, not long after prayers were asked for in his behalf.  Apparently Heavenly Father has a different plan for him. 

He lived a precious 11 days, and was a joy to his family, and was loved so much by his three big brothers and Mom and Dad. 

The knowledge of his heart defect was sudden and serious, and in less than 24 hours he went from seemingly perfect health, to fighting for his life, and then passing quickly and unexpectedly back to his Father in heaven. 

We know that the Plan of Happiness IS REAL, and that HE LIVES. There is life after death, thanks to our Savior, and we KNOW we will see him again. Please pray for our family, we need the comfort your prayers will bring. 

Families are forever, all is well, Tenzin has received "The Crown without the Conflict".

Tenzin Christopher Rich

He has a name !
First day home - doing a little stretching. 
Of course you need to unwrap and inspect every little detail, right? 
Quite hairy - just like his daddy was. 
Grandma Shirlee is on diaper duty, with brother Thatcher checking things out. 
He was looking a little yellow, so spends alot of time in the beautiful sunshine from the back windows.  *Update from yesterday's doctor visit.  He's going to be getting bili lights/blanket.  Darn Jaundice. 
There are those eyes !
Okay - now get me some dinner !
*He's a great little nurser.  All well in that department 
Picture with Tagg (from the hospital)
The brothers are pretty excited.

Baby "T"

Yesterday afternoon, the storm clouds were looming over the mountains.  I knew we would be getting our new baby grandson that evening.  I couldn't help but start humming the song from Saturday's Warrior, and then I teared up.

Who are these children coming down?

Coming down l
ike gentle rain though darken skies........

With glory trailing from their feet as they go,

And endless promise in their eyes!
BABY "T" arrived at 7:37 pm
He was 7 pounds 6 oz. (the biggest baby of them all)
He had a little struggle breathing, so they helped up out for about 30 minutes with a mask like thing (not intubation).  They slowly weaned him off it, and then continued to monitor. 
McKenzie was able to be there and help with everything.
It's so great have a NURSE - our own personal one !
After about 2 hours, CJ was able to be wheeled in and finally got to hold him.
Her smile says it all !
Later they moved her to a room, but kept baby back in labor and delivery.  We all finally came home about 10 pm, when it became apparent that the boys wouldn't get to meet their new baby brother in person that night.  
I made this up when Thatch and Pays were going to be born
Roger, Gwen
Ambure, Amanda, Zac, Landon
Camryn, Treyson, Tagg
Baby "T"
No name yet - they can't come to an agreement.
Theron or Tenzen......
Or maybe something totally different !?
We'll have to wait and see.
Such an SWEETIE !!

October Little Things (so far)

Here are all of the little pumpkins that grew in Grandpa D's garden.  Payson and Brightyn helped me put them in my bathtub, wash them, and dry them off.  They carried them all out here with many trips.   Both Thatcher and Payson took them to share with their respective preschools, plus some for home.  Anita Kimber took some for her grandkids party, and I gave the rest to Carol Brooks for her grandkids party, and also achievement day girls.
Zac and CJ are in their house !
This picture doesn't show the awesome asphalt driveway, but the house is mostly done excepting a couple of exterior things (rain gutters, and painting of white trim boards) 
Fall is in the air, as we have had a couple of storms (no snow yet!)  I love this time of year. 
Tagg finished up his football.  They went to the playoffs, but lost in the first round.  It was fun to support him and Treyson this year.  Fall football is always fun.
Pumpkin Pie shakes courtesy of Grandma Shirlee !!
Cam is still taking bass guitar lessons.
I really want to hear her play !
Some of her friends.  She is outgoing and fun to be around. 
Thatcher  - after his dentist ordeal.  The dentist tried to make his "grey" front tooth, not so grey, with marginal success.  They gave him some liquid Valium, and he was pretty loopy - couldn't walk. 
Anna Lapoint and Treyson at her house.  They are good friends.
Payson and Brightyn picked out their pumpkins at Grandpa and Grandma D's.  Brightyn wanted the baby ghost one for sure.
"R" is for RICH !!!
We found some MOSS next to the shop, and I picked it up and showed them how it felt like velvet.  Then Payson informed me that this is what CARIBOU eat !!  HE IS SO SMART !!!
Ice Cream with SPRINKLES !!!
This is the TREAT DU JOUR at Grandma D's

Someone put this beautiful flower arrangement on my front porch.  It is so beautiful :)  Don't know who the donor was, but it is much appreciated !
Last Saturday was the most glorious day.  Talk about beautiful WEATHER !!
Payson's last soccer game was at 10:30, and it was so warm.  Thatcher was asked to play on his team, and that was so nice.  He's gone to almost every game, and just watched from the sidelines, because he didn't get signed up for soccer this year because of the house being built, boy's football, etc.   Payson played a good game, and didn't come out once.  He is a cautious player, and hangs back.  He really likes to defend the goal.  He scored a goal, and is always so happy when his team scores. 
Roger D and Lando
I think they were talking BASEBALL  (MLB)
My favorite GUY !
We lit the burn pile on fire.  There was a lot of construction waste, and boy did it burn. 
Grandma and Grandpa "D"
CJ wasn't there, but Zac and the boys took the requisite picture.
Landon brought the kiddies up.
Thatcher flying in the fire.
Grandpa Roger and Payson
Brightyn HATES the fire !  She does not like anything HOT!  She avoided, turned away, and didn't want ANYTHING to do with going anywhere near the fire.  Buried her head in Landon's shoulder most of the time they were there.
The rope swing has been touching the ground, so we looked at the base of the big limb that holds it, and it is giving way.  We will probably cut it down soon, before it falls and hurts someone.
Later in the day we took the kids to the Corn Maze in Deep Creek.  It was a little bit of a let down :(
The ground was SO bumpy, and it was really hard walking.
Throwing rocks.
These two are looking forward to Nightmare Ranch, and Staples Maze (in their yard) that are coming up next week.
Later after we had pizza, we went back to the burn pile, and ended up cutting down another limb that had caught fire as the fire had burned.  Zac didn't want it  burning down, and getting the tree house, so he lopped it off.
Also, the other night Treyson got his ARROW OF LIGHT !  We are so proud of him. 
He's now in Boy Scouts, and goes up to Tifie Ranch in his new ward.  He is excited about this !
