Some of Buff's Letters to Mom


Grams,   Sorry this didn't get there on time.  I just want you to know you are always in my thoughts and prayers.
No one in my life has done as much for me as you have.  You have always been there.
I wish I was there to say all this in person.  But I love You with all my heart And I hope you have a wonderful Birthday.
Love Always, Buff

Clyde Eugene Buff Jr. "Buffy" passed away earlier this year.  He had his periods of problems and was away from the family for extended periods of time as a result.  These are a couple letters he sent to my mother over the years. 

Mom: Volunteer Guide: Logan Tabernacle

Mom's Badge
Mom didn't serve very long at the tabernacle, but she did serve.  This letter gives an idea of the work they did as a group in 2006.

Dad, Jim Wardle, Merrill LIbrary Utah State University 1970s

These are my father and his coworkers.  My father is standing in rear above 2nd from right and below on left.   Chloe Olsen is in light blue.  I recognize other faces but not names.  One of my father's coworkers was Lorraine Nash.  I don't recognize her in the picture.  Lorraine's son had leukemia which would claim his life.  On year he went deer hunting with us.  He was close to Charlie's age. 


These pictures are part of an author's fair.  I do not recognize the author.



From the author's fair.  Please let me know if you recognize anyone

Tid Bit about Grandpa Thomas Evan Jeremy's Tree

http://billywardlegen.blogspot.com/2014/02/they-participate-in-landmark-ceremonies.html
I found this not in my mother's things about the tree.  I previously shared the above link which mentioned this tree in the newspaper.
 At 6th W. and So Temple on the old Saltair Railroad, stands the famous Jeremy Cottonwood.  It was planted by Thomas Jeremy in 1852.  It grew and seemed to have served its purpose, and finally was neglected.  Sara Jeremy Anderson of S.L. County board had spoken of the tree in tender amusing terms telling of the girls and boys who came there to play, and each of the tramps who came there to get warm.  Although it was greatly damaged by repeated fires, the old Jeremy Tree reaches 115 feet into the sky, and spreads its great branches almost that far across.  The tree warden of S.L. took it in his care,  doctored and pruned it, an it is now being protected as an historic tree.
