The worst best day

On Tuesday, May 31, Colby was set apart as a missionary by our Stake President.  It was a very emotional experience for all of us.  He had an opportunity to visit for a while and say his goodbyes to everyone.  Wednesday, he had to report to the MTC at 1:15.  We stopped and had lunch on the way down, Mexican food, his choice.

After lunch, we headed down to Provo.  We had a little time to spare, and I was definitely going to keep him with me for every second I could.  We stopped at the Provo City Center Temple and walked  around the grounds until it was time to go.  

It was a very short ride to the MTC.  For me, the experience was every bit as hard as I thought it would be.  Hardest thing I've ever done, watching him walk away.  I love you, Elder Martin.

worthy for whatever he requires." M. Russell Ballard
