Alana had a love for life and almost anything you can imagine. She was loved by all who met her and has been frequently described “as close to an angel as anyone could be.” She was always concerned with others and gave everything she could to help someone. Her friends referred to her as “one of the sweetest people I have ever known.” She believed in the best in people and always wanted the best for them.
She had wonderful talents to make and create beautify art, craft and decoration projects. One of her most favorite activities was to sing and play the piano. She was frequently ask to accompany or sing for special events. To those who heard her sing, it was not forgotten and often became a cherished memory. Her ability to bless and touch others hearts through music was a true inspiration.
Growing up on a farm in Idaho taught her an unbelievable work ethic, she never quit to the point it got her in challenging conditions. In spite of all her health challenges, she loved to bless and help others. Even if she was watching TV, she was also working on a crochet project at the same time.
She had faith beyond belief and has an undying love for our Savior Jesus Christ. She would not let her physical limitations get in the way, she was always willing to do whatever was asked of her. One day she fell on her way into church and cut her arm pretty badly. She simply covered her arm with a tissue and went inside and played the organ for the sacrament meeting, trying not to let blood drip on the organ.
Her example of love and sacrifice will long be remembered.
