In September my dad passed away in Washington. My brothers and sister suggested that now is the time for Dave and I to be able to leave and go on our mission. Lynn and Sharon were excited and willing to take care of Mom so we took the opportunity after 6 years of being in Washington to go ahead and put in our mission papers. We came to Utah so we could spend a little time with the four of our eight children that live here. We also went to Louisiana to visit Thad and his family. We went to California to visit David and his family and also to take our dog Harry to live with them. The only one we won't get to visit is Tara and her family who live in Germany. We will visit Jamie and Marty our way to Maryland.
For those who don't realize it I have the best children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren in the whole world! I am a proud mother. So proud!
