I met your mom when she and Kathleen came to visit a friend of mine in Honeyville. We hit it off immediately and hung out together in the same crowd when I got to Box Elder High for 7th grade. We had fun in high school, but my best memories are at Utah State University. She was so fun to be with, I loved her so much!
