Zach was ordained a deacon and received the Aaronic priesthood on Sunday, October 27. Garry performed the ordination in our living room, since we had stake conference that day. We were so grateful that Garry's parents and mine made the effort to participate in that ordinance and our celebration of such a fine son! We had a wonderful weekend together.
Last Sunday, Zach passed the sacrament at church for the first time. It was a tender moment for Garry and me. Our boy is so grown up, and even on the most trying of days, we know he is a wonderful young man with a bright future.
