Visitors from Mississippi!

This past Wednesday morning, June 15, we got a phone call from a couple, Evelyn & Wilson F, who are in Hank's ward in Mississippi right now, and who were out here visiting some family here in Mesa!  They wanted to come and meet us, and give us a couple of pictures they'd taken of the missionaries!  This sweet couple showed up, gave us the pictures, and visited for about an hour.  We LOVED meeting them.  They were so generous, and offered to take a care package back to him.  So this morning, they showed up at 7:30 am to pick up a box we packed full of his favorite junk food, as well as some practical things like shampoo, toothpaste, sunscreen, etc. 
I can't even begin to express how appreciative John and I are to this sweet couple.  It meant so much to us.  This couple are both from the South, met there, came out to Mesa to marry in the temple, and decided to raise their family here.  They lived here 33 years, retired, and moved back 6 years ago.  They live just about 7 miles from Hank and his companion.  They are ward missionaries, and feed the missionaries often, and said some wonderful things about Hank, which really did my heart good.  I love hearing from other people, how he is doing. 
Here is one of the pictures they shared with us: 
Elder D is on the far right, then I think Elder N, then Hank, but I don't know the Elder on the far left.  This was taken in the Fife's home one night after dinner, during a missionary meeting.  Late May or early June, 2011.

Here are pictures of the Fife's in our home.  We'll be sending copies of these to Hank...I think he'll love them! (Jonna is at EFY for the next 3 weeks as a counselor, so she wasn't in this picture)
Proof that the Fife's were at our home, looking at Hank's pictures on the wall!
