"Til We Meet Again"

 Bryant was ready to serve...Not sure if I was ready for him to leave.
 You really can't say to much good byes at the MTC anymore.  So it was either at the Provo temple where EVERYONE else was saying their good byes, or at the nearby field...or the stake center.
Charlie's last hug from his missionary brother.

 Josh really doesn't know the details of what's going on, but it's important that he said good bye to his brother who has gotten so close to him the last couple of years.

 This was precious.  Jacob and Bryant have developed a bond that only brothers know of.  They were either lovin on each other and inseparable or the opposite.  They truly became best friends.

 Words just can't describe the feeling of joy and sorrow as your missionary leaves.  Out of our hands and into the hands of our Heavenly Father.

 A proud moment for this dad to have another son serve a mission.

 Our boys, one last time.
It was emotionally draining, and the drive home was only 30 minutes.

Ah! I'm in tears. These pictures really do show how emotional that day was for you all. Much love to you and your family. You and Doug must be so proud of your boys. But no surprise they've all turned out so awesome, they've had some pretty wonderful parents!
