Glenda and I are grateful we attended the last Bringhurst family reunion in St. George this Spring. We were able to see cousins we don't see often enough, and we were able to visit with our aunt Betty before she passed.

So sorry we were not able to be there today. It would have been nice to see some relatives that we don't see often enough. Aunt Betty always reminded me of my dad in so many ways and I'm sure they are having a great reunion.
