Released After 9 Years

My dad was released today from his 9 1/2-year calling as Stake President. I know it was a bittersweet thing for him, as he has loved those who he served & served with.
Mexico - May 2004

After I went through the temple for the first time.

Dinner in San Francisco with our family friends the Carters.

Mexico - June 2009 (growing out the beard for a King Benjamin speech for Youth Conference - He memorized the whole thing & performed it for the family while in Mexico. It was a very touching experience.)

Thank you for your wisdom, patience, love, generosity, kindness, faith . . . everything over the years.
We love you dad & are so grateful for the wonderful light you are in our lives.


  1. Your dad is a wonderful person and was an awesome Stake President. Thanks Edgren family for sharing him with the rest of us!

  2. You are lucky to have such a great Dad! Looking through your pictures I also couldn't help but comment on how beautiful you are.

  3. Was it really only 9 years? I swear it feels like he's been stake pres for like 15. I'm sure you guys are glad to have your dad back!

  4. oh your dad is so great... we just LOVE him!

  5. I still can't believe that he is no longer the stake prez. He was it for so long. I wonder what he will be next. Her dad is amazing guy. I know everyone in the stake is going to miss working with him. Now your mom and dad better relax a lot because knowing your dad he will probably get another calling

  6. I wasn't around when your dad became Stake President but he is by far the BEST bishop I've ever had. Such a wonderful, caring, genuine, wise man!
