Farewell Bishop Millington

Today we got a new bishopric in our ward. It was a bittersweet day because it's always hard to say goodbye to the old leadership; yet our bishopric served diligently for 5 1/2 years. Our bishop was an excellent leader and a good friend of our family.

Billy and I vacationed with Bishop Millington and Gayla in Mexico several years ago and had good times there getting pulled over by the Mexican police because we were going "too fast around the curves" (really it was those two blondes in the back seat...), playing Mexican train, baking on the beach, boogie boarding in the ocean, finding a "secret beach" to lounge on, attending church and giving out candy to the cute Mexican children, and enjoying the excellent Mexican food and atmosphere.
We'll miss you, Bishop Millington. You were an excellent servant and a wonderful leader who kept our ward going. Good luck in the nursery!! (Well, maybe they'll give you a week or two off before that calling is extended...)
