I hope your week was wonderful. Did you get my box?
My heart goes out to you and your lose. I loved Kevin, and I only knew him through your letter. Your love for him shone through on bright. Try to find out Kevin's date of birth, etc. so you can do his temple work. He has no family. It's you. I cried all night for him and you.

I had never thought of that scripture in terms of being a missionary, but knowing how a young 19 year old, with the spirit, can and does influence others to change, is a testament to the truth of those words.
Cooper is officially an Eagle Scout! He passed his board of review this past Thursday, with the support of three other ward members who drove out to Weatherford to support him. He’s thinking either Memorial Day weekend, or in the fall during the holidays for his Court of Honor. He spent the weekend making a few phone calls, and writing a few thank you cards.
Cooper also got to fly a plane Friday after school, the plane high school students built last year. He’s determined to get his pilot’s license, and wants to spend the summer studying for his pilot license exam. I need to convince him to get his driver’s license first.
Speaking of driving, Sawyer got his permit. His dream was to drive away from or drive up to middle school as an 8th grader. His wish was fulfilled. When I pulled up to pick him up on Thursday, I climbed over the console, he slid in, and drove through the parking lot of his middle school with the entire school outside waiting for pick up pointing, gawking and cheering. It has to be one of the top ten moments of my life. Sawyer will forever be endeared to his classmates for his kindness and regard, but his peers will not quickly forget the day an 8th grader drove away from school.
Miller and Sawyer had some baseball this weekend. Sawyer played Thursday, Friday and Saturday, while Miller just Friday evening. Sawyer actually had a no hitter Thursday. He also had an in the park home run. Friday I didn’t get to watch his game, as I was at Miller’s, but he had a smash of a triple before the rain hit. His team is undefeated.
Miller had two line drive doubles that went to the fence. He pitched three innings, and was responsible for seven of the nine outs. When they moved him to catch, the game declined to a loss, but not due to his efforts. Both of your brothers carry their teams. Hunter will enjoy watching them while he ‘s home.
Dad also found one picture of you on Facebook.
