Swenson, 30, was reported missing from American Fork on July 27th. After weeks of searching, his body was seen floating in Mill Creek on August 13th.

My dearest love, today marks 3 months, 96 days, 2,304 hours that you haven’t been in our lives. It still doesn’t feel real. Our little human is the sweetest gift and I see you in her more and more each day. She is funny and beautiful, she’s full of happiness and love, she makes people smile.. she got that from you. You would be so proud of your friends, every single one has stepped up and offered an immense amount of support and love to Poppy and I. I’m so grateful for the relationships you nurtured in your life and the love you offered to everyone you met. It’s a quality I’m really trying to get better at. Our hearts ache for you every day. I know your around, we feel you all the time. Thank you for the life we had, you helped me grow in ways I never knew were possible. You promised me when we got married you’d always make me laugh no matter what was going on around us and you did just that. Despite our trials there was a deep love and connection that no one can take away. It was a love rooted deeper then trees. Love you forever dude #lovelikepaul #poppyraeofsunshine 📸
