2011 has been a year of ups and downs for the Ludlow Family. We lost our family patriarch this year - Marv's father died at the age of 97, however, his funeral was a celebration of a life well lived. Most of the Ludlow's gathered in Salt Lake City to pay their respects. It was a time of reunion and bonding with relatives. Marv's mother is still living in SLC but she misses Dad a lot.
*We also lost our backyard swimming pool. We have enjoyed that pool for 28 years. It was damaged in a severe storm in May. We decided that it was time to fill it in. Our Grandchildren were mad at us, but we now have a touch football field and badminton court in our backyard. Marv does not miss cleaning the pool every day in the summer.
*Karen and Marv continue to serve in the Winter Quarters Temple. They logged ten years of temple service this year.
*Teaghan, John's oldest daughter who has been in school in Utah, announced that she is going to be married next April. She is going to marry Tyler Turman of Indiana. Marv will be the sealer for their marriage in the Salt Lake Temple. She will be our first Grandchild to get married.
*We are grateful that our family is doing well. Our children are all well employed and our 12 grandchildren are healthy and dong well in church and school. God has blessed us with a good life. We are also grateful for this holiday season. This is a fun and exciting time of the year. We are also mindful of the blessings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We hope this letter finds you happy and prosperous.
*Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
