April Showers and Misc Flowers
Thursday evening we were so excited for the visit from Geoff Grant and his family from England. Geoff was an assistant to Tim and Gloria in the Bristol Mission for several months and was a part of the family. None of us have seen him in 10 years. What a delight to meet his beautiful wife Michelle and their two handsome sons Oliver and James. It was fun to have dinner and visit, what a thrill to see each other again.
The U's Disability Services Center received an award this week from the U's Queer Student Union. Joseph was invited, along with others from the Center to receive the award at their festive Gay Ball (in the photo above right: next to Joseph is Jenny Jones, one of our former EBM missionaries and next to her is Carol MacNicholl, Coordinator of Deaf Services). Joseph took Kate Lyon, left (also an EBM RM) and they had a blast.
Marci Smith has been a part of our family since she was born. She and her brother Matt have been surrogate siblings to Joseph since they were children (Oh the stories they could tell). Gloria hosted a wedding shower for her at our home on Saturday. It was fun to have former ward members and so many friends celebrating Marci's happiness. Tim and Joseph helped clean up . . . the refreshments at least.
Jazz in thee Playoffs: Roses or Thorns
When Joseph scored tickets on Ebay for Game Four on Saturday night he hoped for a Jazz win over the Lakers like they managed in Game Three. He took his friend Tina, a true Jazz fan (note the awesome autographed jersey she is sporting in the before and after photos). The Jazz came up short, but Joseph and Tina had a lot of fun anyway.
