Celebration of Gary Young’s Life

(If you haven’t heard that the Young Living Essential Oil Founder has passed away peacefully please click this link to read YL President Jared Turner’s official summary.)
I’ve been blessed to have time over the many years to see Gary in action and to speak with him about our world. I’ve been with Young Living for almost 14 years. He was truly a “good and faithful servant.”  I’ll be sharing memories with you and posting resources at Healthy Young Living Habits with Tara Rayburn on Facebook

Celebration of Life Memorial 
All Young Living members, employees, and members of the public are invited to attend the funeral, which will take place at 1 p.m., MT, on Friday, May 18, at the beautiful and peaceful Whispering Springs Farm and Distillery, one of Gary’s favorite spots in the world. The farm is located at 3700 Old Highway 91 in Mona, Utah. The funeral will be preceded by a viewing the same morning from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m., MT, located in the Show Barn.

Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The capacity for viewing the proceedings within the rodeo arena at the farm is approximately 4,000, with approximately 14,000 additional overflow seats at an ancillary location on the farm, where the proceedings will be broadcast.
