To the family of Lois and Glenn McKay I grew up in the Highland Ward and truly thought the world of your dear mother, Lois. She was my primary teacher and always was so kind and loving whenever I would meet her. Glenn was a faithful servant of the Lord also and it is always a pleasure to remember them. My parents were Leslie and Vera Z. Christensen. They lived in the Highland Ward until their deaths, my dad in 1983 and my mother in 1988. I know they both enjoyed knowing your parents in their many years of serving together in church callings. It was always special to have know the Boyle family too. I see Carole B. Burnett at different times like class reunions and more recently in the Ogden Temple. Both families contributed so much to the Highland Ward and to the city of Ogden. You have a great heritage from all they taught you. I lost my only brother Joseph Z. Christensen in 1998. I talked to Lois at the time that your dear brother Bob passed away. May we all have a happy reunion sometime in the great life that awaits all of us. Carol C. Stewart Fruit Heights, Utah
