Places we have visited.
Then in Oct. 21st Quentin was taken into the Service. Well that was the last straw! We had planned that Quentin would be with us in our old age to comfort and help us, but not so.
After three years, in war service in the States, he went over seas for a short time and then came home with his family to make us a visit. He was here a week or so, and we decided to take them back to California. So we all got into the dodge and away we went. Stopped at Burley here they were to live visited all over San Francisco and Oakland, then on to Modesto to visit sister Delores and family. We had a wonderful visit, then came back. We brought Rhoda and Burns back to Salt Lake to be married in the Temple. We also brought Mrs. Magelby. They were married May 2nd, 1945 in Manti.
We came home rested up then took Allen and Lula and started out for Southern Utah. Went to Bryce, Zions Canyon, Sulphur Spring at Hurricane, also relatives lived there. We went to St. George and stayed all night at Ruth Giles. Went to the Temple twice. Came back by Harmony stayed there that night, came to Cedar , stayed with Iseral Neilsson all night, came to Beaver my old home town and took pictures of same. We went to Delta to see Aunt Julia, visited her sons and daughters and came home happy for the trip and privilege I had had.
On the 24th of September, Dad and I started out for Canada to visit my sister Minnie whom I had not seen for seven years. Our trip was wonderful. Everything was new and different. All the folks were so grand to us, they took us up to Banff in the Canadian rockies, traveld by train, ate for the first time in a diner on the train. We stayed at Nola's on the way back then to Provo to see our new grandson Michael, and found out that our darling was blind, I'll tell you I was broken hearted.
I have visited the Florence Cemetary in Nebraska, visited the graves of Oliver Cowdery, David Harris (Whitmer) at Far West Missouri, visited largest caves in the world at Carlsbad Mexico, Boulder Dam, State Capital in Sacramento, Colorado, Kansas, Iowa, Mexico.
Viola, Brig, Dad and I went to Pima in Arizona for a visit that was nice. We have made two trips to California in the last two years. this last time we visited Harmony Hills, where Quentin is making his home. Also Zula's parents at Sabastapol. We saw the Sing Sing Prison and crossed the Ferry on ta large boat. Have been in Idaho, Montana, Calgaria and Lethbridge.
The hardest blows I have had, in the deaths of my two find sons, who left a wife and a baby each, and a fine grandson Emil, who was killed on a motorcycle.
My children are my riches and all I can ever take with me when I leave this earth. May they all prove faithful and while am here I am truly happy when I see them doing right.
God grant that each and everyone of you our dear children will live so that when the end comes yu can say, "I have done the best I could."
Your Dear Mother.
