Nauvoo Farewells!!

To the Site Missionaries (Elder & Sister Cranney one night after Rendezvous) He is my mother's 2nd cousin.
Farewell to all my house plants...just look how healthy they are. This is Sister Lambert & Sister Hallman who work in the laundry at the Temple. They promised to talk to them and keep them healthy and happy :) I hated to let them go, but there was no way I could get them all home.
Took my last walk in the Groves west of the Temple and read this sign telling of the Saints leaving Nauvoo in 1846...Yes, it is a solemn time for them and for me!
