A Big Loss for Our Little Branch...

This past week our little branch has lost one of it's founders, Marie Mellott. When we moved to Del Norte 30 years ago, there was 1 active family and 1 active sister, Sister Mellott. She has been a steadfast member of the Church for over 50 years and a rock in our Branch. She was 89 years old. In Relief Society on Sunday, our RS Pres was talking about Marie and said that the torch was being passed to of all people, me. I don't consider myself anywhere near being the kind of person that can sustain a branch or ward. I guess that sometimes these jobs are given to us by default. There are lots of people in my life that I consider to be like Marie. I hope that I can be like them one day.
