This is George's son, Chris Smith with his wife, Becky, and two of their three children, Jaden & Clarissa, along with Becky's parents, Patricia & Dan Knudsen. George's other five children live from coast to coast.
Last year, our ward boundaries were changed. These are friends from our current ward (Rick & Cheryl Duerden) and our former ward (Shanna Bryant & good friend, Bob)
It made us so happy to look out at the congregation & see the number of people who had made a special effort to come to our ward "farewell" (we later figured out that the number was 55) . Many of them had responsibilities in their home wards and had to leave after Sacrament Meeting, but it meant so much to us to have them there. Later, at our home, I was so glad that Jim suggested this picture with my wonderful friends, Michelle Blake (who worked with me at Middlebury Interactive Languages) and Trudy Dowling, (who became a life-long friend when we met as young Army officer's wives at Ft. Benning, GA in 1970).
