Fwd: Sa ka rive koukouloukou a ka rive kakalanga tou

Me and Sister Young!

Us at sisters conference! UnShoutout to Sister Anderson for cutting out Sister Landaverry.

Betty's 93rd birthday. Right after this picture she leaned over and told me "I'm going for 100!" So I promised her I'd come back for her 100th birthday.
