It was a glorious, miserable day. We took our oldest son Jeff to the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah to start his 2 year mission to the Marshall Islands. He has prepared his whole life for this moment, as have his Mom and I. It did not make it any easier to say goodbye. It hurt terribly to let him go, but we know he is where he is supposed to be.
I want to express my love and gratitude for all the teachers, coaches, leaders, family members and sweet friends that... have had such an impact on Jeffrey and our family. You have helped Jeff become an amazing man.
