So Long, Farewell, Goodbye

Easter Sunday – Landon spoke in sacrament meeting. It was the first time he has ever given a 15 minute talk and he nailed it!!! His talk was heartfelt and sincere. He is going to be an amazing missionary!

Landon has been saying his goodbyes for months. It started in December, when family and friends traveled to Utah for the holidays, he knew he wouldn’t see them again before he left. Goodbyes are hard.

Landon has been volunteering at the local elementary school for the last 4 months. Every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoon he helps 1st graders and kindergartners in the library. They adore him. They were not happy that he was leaving. I made them all Taiwan Bookmarks. Some kids literally hung on him or shadowed him the entire time!

“I will miss him.”

“He’s my favorite.”

“Why does he have to leave.”

On the first time back, after Landon went to the MTC, one kid looked at me and said, “Oh yeah, I forgot, Landon is not here.”
