This is Gary and Ernie. They are our best friends. Gary is a professional genealogist and a long distance runner. We have done many marathons and half marathons together over the years. Ernie is a retired attorney and Harold's best friend from childhood. We have a tradition of trail hiking/running every Saturday morning and then going out for breakfast.
They live in a beautiful home in East Millcreek overlooking the Salt Lake Valley. They share their home with Ernie's daughter and her little family. Both of them are devoted grandpas and have close relationships with their grandchildren.
Gary and Ernie are in a committed and loving marriage. They are two of the kindest people I know and I love them with all my heart.

Olive was a Mormon pioneer who was captured by the Yavapai Indians. I was first introduced to her on the TV series "Hell on Wheels", one of my favorite series that tells the story of the building of the railroad, complete with Mormons, polygamy and Brigham Young. I am reading a book about her called "The Blue Tattoo " by Margot Mifflin. This is an acrylic painting on a 24"x 24" wood canvas my husband made, between my son Tracey and my husband I can say goodbye to canvas frames forever.
