Forty Six Years
It is hard to believe I attended my first Memorial forty six years ago. As I mentioned before, I missed the actual Memorial a few years ago when I broke my arm as I was entering the building. I had forgotten until someone mentioned it tonight that I also missed last year's Memorial - I listened in - but it isn't the same as being there when the emblems are passed. Matt was the chairman this year and did an excellent job. I am so proud of Matt and Eric who was also made an Elder not too long ago. I have watched them grow up from children to become fine young men. I know their parents are as happy and proud as I am. We had 266 attend the Memorial this year. It was so good to see some old friends I haven't seen in quite awhile. Raymond gave the talk and he did a wonderful job. By the time the emblems were passed, you felt like you were actually in that upper room with Jesus and his beloved 11 apostles. Everyone looked so pretty - especially these two special young ladies. All the young ones are growing up so fast. Makes me feel old .... or should I say - "older".
