I am a 75-year old journalist and the other authors are family. We particularly enjoy the old family stories. That is what this blog is about--preserving the past of our family including those who have gone ahead into the "great beyond" and left us with a rich heritage to share. To paraphrase author, David McCullough, some of these stories are even true.

Charlotte sent me an e-mail letting me know but she just sent it. Therefore, I missed the graveside services. I guess Uncle Bob thought I would see the obituary in the newspaper. It should have been in the Deseret News but it seems to have been only in the Salt Lake Tribune which is where I found this.
