My family attended a celebration today for the life of Patrick Price. Those who joined us will likely never forget what they experienced, nor should they – Patrick Price lived a life that demands our gratitude, our laughter, our respect, and our love.

Tuesday afternoon, I learned that Patrick had suddenly passed away. He was 30 years old. He is the father of three boys, aged 3 & under. He is the husband of Brittany.

To understand what he means to us, is to understand what Brittany means to us. For many years she was like a part of our family. She was an older sister to our children and a daughter to Amy & me. As she finished high school and entered adulthood, we wanted nothing more than for her to find the perfect man. She deserved to find the perfect man. She found the perfect man.

Patrick was virtually the male version of Brittany. He would light up every room he entered. He was funny, always smiling. He treated Brittany with the love and respect she deserved. He was truly the young man every dad wishes their daughter could marry.

Married just four years ago, Patrick and Brittany have three boys. With each one you knew their joy grew exponentially. I am not sure if I have ever met a couple better equipped to be parents.

When I learned Tuesday that Patrick's heart suddenly stopped beating. It was as if someone had changed the laws of gravity. For hours I could not really comprehend how this was real. How could this happen to a young man in seemingly perfect health; a father of three young boys, with a wife that was his perfect mate?

I told Amy on Tuesday, the last person on earth who deserves to endure this pain - is Brittany.

Today, I learned that perhaps the only person who could actually handle this pain – is Brittany.

Her strength through this seems super-human, and following today’s funeral, I am convinced it is.

The pain of losing Patrick will never leave Brittany, but her understanding of what Patrick meant to almost every person he met, has given her a peace that cannot be explained by the human capability to cope. She is the living testament to Psalm 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”

About a thousand people attended today’s funeral. None could truly understand why this would happen, but it was undeniable to all – in only 30 years, Patrick lived a life worth living. His was an exemplary life.

Perhaps the greatest tribute I can leave him is to be a better father, a better son, a better brother, and a better husband – because in doing so, I will be more like Patrick.

The bill, approved this week in the House and the Senate by voice vote, eliminates a provision of the law that would have imposed tough, potentially costly new requirements on businesses with 51 to 100 employees.

A White House spokeswoman confirmed that Mr. Obama would sign the bill, but she declined to discuss its substance. Recent comments by administration officials suggested that they did not particularly like the legislation but could not stop the growing wave of bipartisan support for it.

At issue is a provision of the health care law that expands the definition of a “small employer” to include companies with 51 to 100 employees, subjecting them to stringent insurance regulation starting Jan. 1. States have historically defined small employers as those with 50 or fewer employees.

Stand up for educational freedom! Please sign the petition for the children of Nevada.
Stand with Nevada Parents. This year the state of Nevada gave all parents the freedom to decide how their children will be educated. And now an organization that professes to defend the rights and liberties of every individual is trying to take that freedom away from them.

By giving parents access to education savings accounts (ESAs), Nevada is allowing them to customize their children’s education in a way not imagined only 10 years ago. Nevada is fulfilling its role as a laboratory of democracy.
