Today I bid farewell to one of the most amazing young ladies I have ever had the privilege of knowing. My good friend from elementary school, Merri, has been called to serve a mission in the Phillipines. I just hope they come to realize what a precious gift they are receiving when she joins them. I have never met someone more compassionate, spiritual, and kind. Good luck, my most marvelous friend, you are going to do a world of good!
Fare thee well, friend!
