Life Continues

A mission doesn't stop the normal chain of events in our family.  We've experienced both emotional lows and highs during the past several weeks.

On March 26, Ron's father passed away in Ohio.  He was buried on the day that would have marked his 95th birthday.  It was sad to see him go but we rejoice in the knowledge that we will see him again.  Our mission president did give us permission to be with friends and family for the celebration of dad's life.  It was great to be with so many of our children who made the trip to Ohio as well members of our extended family from all parts of the country.  It was especially nice to see old friends that we haven't had contact with for many years.

We postponed our mission in order to meet grandchild #19, Charlotte Bea Wolff born to Jamie and
Allison on December 20, 2014.  We entered the Missionary Training Center soon after visiting them in Virginia. We did miss the birth of grandchild #20.  Finn Jonas Triplett was born on April 16, 2015.  His proud parents are Melissa and Russ.  Finn was born in Denver.

Makai and Claire joined Melissa and Russ welcoming Finn to their family.
