Uncle Mel Passed Away
I don't know how many of my children really knew Uncle Mel Romney. He graced all of our Lunt Family gatherings, even after Aunt Eula died and he remarried. He was one of the kindest men you will ever meet. He was famous for his clear tenor voice. I will most remember a day and night I spent with him when he was trucking produce between Salt Lake and the west coast. To all of his children and grandchildren I send my love and empathy. We all know he's truckin' right now!
Thank you, Kirsten Nicole, for the great photo of Mel in his suit. The photos of Uncle Mel in his Hawaiian shirt were taken at our 2008 Lunt Reunion in American Fork.

All descendants of Great Grandpa Díaz, I thought you'd like to know that he is well and taking nourishment. The salmon was the best ever!

Mitt Romney book signing, Deseret Book Store in La Jolla. To save gas, Lupe dropped me off early while she went to an appointment. I was second in line for the book signing. I got interviewed by Associated Press and by CNN. The AP reporter is pictured here. This first picture made it onto Governor Romney's website.
Now we have a signed copy of his new book. We also have father & son signatures in our 1966 World Book Encyclopedia. We got George W's in 1994, after a fireside here in La Mesa.

CPR Saturday in San Diego
San Diego makes it easy once a year to qualify in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation skills. Now it's thirty chest compressions to two ventilations, and they're talking about possibly doing away with the ventilations altogether in the future. I encourage all family members to certify when you have an opportunity. You never know when you might need these skills!
