The happenings of the Billy and Sheri Wardle family
What's In This Blog
I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Simon and Maddie
Maddie is my daughter-in-law's sister (Caleb's sister-in-law) and Simon is Caleb's good friend from his high school garage band Hot Spud. They were married Saturday in the Oakland temple. We attended the wedding dinner and ring ceremony. Annie sang a song as the wedding party entered. Caleb and Annie sat with us during dinner, as did Paul and Jamyn, Annie's parents. Paul told a story of how difficult it was for them to leave Maddie at BYUI a few years back. It was also difficult for Maddie, and she was crying as they left. They were concerned for Maddie, and called Simon to check on her. Simon was able to report an hour or so later that Maddie was going to be OK. It was very moving. We had a good time. The dinner was at the same gold course where Caleb and Annie had their wedding dinner.
We are the Wardles. I am Billy. We are the parents of 8, one in Heaven
(stillborn,) 6 birth and 1 adopted. Four are away from home, two
daughters married and two sons in the Logan area going to school. Tony,
our adopted son is 11 years younger than our youngest birth child, so
he is greatly spoiled. I have worked for the Duckwater Shoshone Tribe, Utah State Social Services, part of the time working with the Ute Tribe, Uintah Basin Counseling and Santa Clara County Mental Health for the last 21 years. Active Mormon and I follow the prophet.
