Malynne: You just called me Melinda.....
Malynne: Ha ha well I am glad you didn't forget! :) How are you?
Mom: I just read your letter and I am crying. Sometimes I just really miss you. And I ffeal like a lousey mom for not writting mire. Do you or your companion nerd anything? It sounds like she doesnt have much. If I send you domething for vslentines shoukd I send her something toi? What size id she?what would you like?
Malynne: She is around the same size as me. Honestly she today was talking about how she would like Carinessa garments since all they sell in the islands is dry silk. I can't think of anything specific and I would be happy with anything, but she would love a few pairs. Probably just a size bigger on both top and bottom would work really well for her. :) Also, I really miss you too! I can't believe I am coming home so soon it is kind of freakin' me out. So, you won't have to miss me for long. Also I have a question, when I get home from my mission (and you can say no) I would love to stop at the draper temple on the way home. I just want to be at the temple that I love as a missionary. Ya know, I watched them pick the ground announce it in conference, I watched it be built and then do the open house and then do most baptisms there. It's kind of my temple and I love it. So, don't know if that would be cool with you, but I would love it! Also, tentative release date for me is August 16th.
Mom: Yes yes snd I thought you would be home sooner. Sad tears. When you come home Connie will be able to do baptisms with us. (again, text to speech. Connor = Connie).
Malynne: Yes! :) Thank you! I am so excited! Wearing my tag in my temple! Yes! :) Hey, it's still a tentative date so it might be sooner. But I am kind of grateful it's not in July when they were talking about it! :)
Mom: Lucy sndersons mom lives in hsmilton. Her name is sparky. I need a msiling address.
Malynne: guess they decided to have us stay longer. :) Oh, I get the phone number now! Is her mom a member?
125 snowberry st.
Hamilton, Montana 59840 :)
Mom: Hamelin I'm on my way home now how long are you going to be there I want to write back to answer some of your questions (Hamelin = Hey Malynne)
Malynne: I am going to be heading out really soon we have to go to some stupid meeting. Totally bugged, but it's all good, next week we'll have more time. :)
***Mom's Note: There was a lot more to this conversation, but it was between my texting, Lowell's texting and Malynne's replys. Lowell and I were at lunch together, and we were both texting as fast as we could. Malynne sounded so happy. She loves her new companion and loves the new area.
