Rick and I went to the cannery in Dallas to do some food storage. We had a good time. It brought back many memories for me. Many years ago we as sisters in our ward went to the cannery every month faithfully. It didn't matter how much or how little you wanted to do, we just worked together and had a great time. I think about those sisters often. I was thinking about Susan Nelson who use to go with us, what a great lady she was. She has since passed away but her legacy and spirit live on, she taught me alot. For awhile I was blessed to be her visiting teacher, how I loved her and really enjoyed our visits. Her youngest son was in between Brett and Meridith, we had Joy School together with Brian, Spencer, Darrell and Meridith, what joy those memories bring back, and now all those kids are grown, some even have families of their own. I am so thankful to have lived in a ward with so many wonderful friends and great memories.
