When a parent bids farewell to a child, something dies within that parent’s heart, said President Russell M. Nelson speaking at funeral services for his “righteous and joyful” daughter on Saturday.

“But when love pours in so bounteously from family, friends and colleagues, that grief is assuaged in a most marvelous way,” said the leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Thousands filled the Cottonwood Heights Utah Brighton Stake Center to capacity to pay tribute to Wendy Nelson Maxfield, 67, who died Friday, Jan. 11, of cancer.

A wife and mother, Wendy Maxfield was remembered for the love, testimony, music, energy and laughter she shared. She and her husband, Norman A. Maxfield, are the parents of seven children and have 20 grandchildren. She is the second of nine daughters and one son born to President Nelson and Sister Dantzel White Nelson.
