Beautiful report on the services/tribute to Brother Covey. My first experience with Stephen was in the Varsity Theatre on the campus of BYU in the fall of 1971. He taught the principle of 'Spiritual Roots'. It was a life transforming experience for me. I also enjoyed several seminars through the years. Truly a life well lived. Thank you Brother Covey. God speed.

Typical of the Covey family to make the services open to all of the many, many, people that wished to attend. What a wonderful service and my thanks to them for sharing it with so many of us that either knew him or were influenced by him.

As I age and so many of the people that have passed through my life move on I enjoy being able to take some time and reflect on how they have affected my life. It was a great honor to have known this family and I thank Dr. Covey for all he did, however indirectly, to make my life a bit more enjoyable.

No greater compliment from his own children to say as good as he was in public, he was even better in private and in person with his family. Great example.
