11th Ward Reunion - July 6th, 2009

We have the opportunity to get together with the old 11th Ward. What a night to come together again after so many years.

I think Chris Coffman said it best
"OK - I need to be sappy & sentimental ... I am humbled to realize how people who have pass through our lives touch our hearts and spirits. I haven't seen some of you in long while, but seeing you wiped away the years and I remembered how much I love you and appreciate your influence in my life, even if it was years ago. Looking forward to a get-together next year!"

We almost lost Lindsay that night, she darted out and was almost hit by a car, how fast an evening can go from pure joy to almost tragedy. We were blessed, Lindsay was protected. See the little necklace around her neck, her Uncle Jason gave that to her, as a "Good Luck" Charm after that evening.
