I LOVE this family! Dan went to BYU when I did (as well as David Weist (Myrlene), and Shauna Romney (Lee). We had a great time there together. I remember him carrying me on his shoulders as we wandered around campus. He also dated my roommate.

Becky was a year or so younger and we were good friends too. We have continued to see each other over the years and I have found her so easy to talk to. She is tender, loving and kind. We even went to see some of the Romney graves in St. George together a year or two ago.

Hi, I just wanted to let Ruth Ann and Ryan know that my husband Scott and I lived in Rochester, NY for 4 years while Scott was in medical school. We loved living there and still have some great friends there. Are you enjoying New York? By the way, I am Myrlene Romney Wiest's youngest daughter. Since I was born and raised in St. Louis, Mo. I didn't get to know a lot of the Romney relatives like my siblings did, but I am excited to make up for lost time!
