Since we returned home in 1999 Garred has returned from his mission in Rio North, Devin has returned from his mission in Mozambique Africa, Braden has returned from his mission in Rio de Janeiro. Jaron our youngest son is now serving his mission in Curitiba Brazil. Devin and Garred have both married this past year and are buying homes in Lehi, Utah. Our oldest son has one daughter and another daughter due in December. Our daughter lives in Billings Montana and has three children. (two boys and one girl) We are all doing well. Our family spent 10 days in Brazil in September 2004 and Sister Sheppard and I spent two weeks in Tahiti earlier this year. We miss all our missionaries and send our love to each of you.
