Take Good Care of Her

Dear Jooj,

While I don't regret our recent car trade one bit, I must admit that I was sad to see the old girl go today. She has been very good to us for the past 6 years. We have many fond memories, including the Thanksgiving we spent on Balboa and got engaged, camping in Montana (it's a good thing we were newlyweds because we barely fit), bringing home two new babies from the hospital, driving the entire stretch of the I-15 (not in one trip, thankfully), moving 4 times, and surviving most of our first summer in Arizona without air conditioning.

So take good care of her, please. She will be missed.

Love, Stephanie

p.s. Are you sure you don't want our sweet Honda instead? It's not too late to change your mind.


  1. oh i'm sorry steph to be taking away so many of your memories with the volvo! :) but i assure you i will drive her as safely as possible. she's in good hands i promise....although i can't say as much for mimi and lincoln driving her back to utah for you. questionable! :)

  2. We just recently sold our old truck. It is so sad to see a dear friend go, but the memories will last forever.

    Heard Jooj on the radio this am. KUCI at 9:00. She gave a really good interview and told about Africa and the Care for Life program. If you go on your computer to KUCI 88.9 and check on the David Waldram show -there is a section for the archieves and in that is the "Dave Show." Scroll down to the Aug. 30 and you can probably hear the broadcast. Love you all
