Jolyn We LOVE you and you will be missed.

If most of you haven't heard and are checking this, Jolyn passed away today around 2pm. This is one blog that I never wanted to write. My thoughts are with the Manuela's. We love you SO much and I know that I can say that the whole Ward is thinking about you at this difficult time. Please let me or anyone know what we can do.

Jolyn has been such a blessing to me in my life and the way she handled herself through everything. We have had so many wonderful touching memories through primary and Young Women's. She was truly spunky and sparkled everyday. She will be missed and thought of throughout my life.

Love you Jolyn.

Jolyn seems to be doing pretty well. I feel bad because I heard that she wrote me an email to update you all but it didn't go through so hopefully she will resend it and we will hear from her how things are going. But I did hear that she is upbeat and smiling from Shauna. Also, correct me if I am wrong but I heard she took quite a few steps the other day. Who hooo.... We love you tons girl and think about you all the time.

Here were a few things that happened this week within the ward. I thought you might like to be updated on what going on here.
This morning we had humanitarian and worked on some quilts. We worked on Melinda's baby blanket too. Thanks to all those terrific women who are there every Wednesday.

Tonight there was girls night for the Relief Society Sisters. We went to the Thai Village and most of the group had never been there. Also, everyone asked Shauna how you were doing. So you were definitely on peoples minds.
On Tuesday night young men and young women had a combined activity where they split into groups and made up Mormon Ads. The winning group drew a picture of a teenager listening to an Ipod and on the Ipod the artist was the Holy Ghost and the caption was "Never Stop Listening." (the winners were, Brother Combs, Nick Searle, Isaac Harper, Marissa Searle, Tyler Searle, and Annie Christensen. - not to mention Abigail was there helping them... ) The groups also turned there Mormon Ads into brief commercials. It was really fun to see everyones creativity.

I thought I would post a few of these pictures Shauna took of you and your family at the hospital. You look great, as always.. I hear that you had to fix yourself up first.. Silly girl you are always beautiful.

Some of the stuff that Jolyn has gotten from loving family and friends.

Jolyn's picture wall.
This is a really cool bubble thing that makes her room look really cool. I could watch it all day.
