Scott Mills Update

Wow has is really been 15 years?? What a ride! Well we have been quite busy since we've last been together. Kari (KariLyn Digerness) and I will be celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary October 23rd and our 13th Temple Sealing anniversary on Freedom Day, Sept. 11th.



We have three children; Braden is 12 (almost 13) Katelyn is 10 and Nicole is 7. All three keep us on our toes  with school, dance and other activities. Kari has gone back to school and is currently an advanced EMT working on getting into fire school and persuing Paramedic. I have been at Discover Financial Services for the last 13 years and currently work in the IRA department assisting account holders with their IRA options. I am looking into the new Mortuary Science program SLCC just got approved to offer. We still live really close to a lot of all the places we grew up with here in West Valley! The girls are attending Rolling Meadows Elementary and Braden just started at Valley Junior High! So excited to see everyone and have some fun!

Brandi (Lloyd) Hewitt Update


First of all it blows my mind how much time has passed. In our 30's now! I remember thinking how old that was going to be. I still feel so young at heart, with a more mature outlook I hope!


Well right after high school graduation I started at SLCC with a full ride scholarship and began my nursing education. Unfortunate before the first semester was over my step dad passed away. He was the man that raised me and I considers Dad. I was devastated and had a hard time continuing school at that time. A couple years later I decided to go back and graduated with my LPN from Snow in 2002. I have been a nurse for 10 years now. I have done a year towards my RN and bachelors at Westminster, and will be continuing on for a graduate degree in nursing.


I gave birth to two kids, my son Jordan 15 (almost 16), my daughter Jaidyn 12. Seven years ago I was fortunate enough to be blessed with three more Tyeler 17, Chellsea 15 (almost 16) and Phoenix 8.


I met my soul mate, my life line, Jeremy. He is my rock, my partner and my absolute love.


I was recently amazingly fortunate to find my Dad and have since met incredible siblings and other family members.


I won't leave out my mom, she's been an instrumental part of it all and without her I would never have become the woman I am today! I am so lucky to have them all! Truly an amazing family.

It's been an incredible ride and I can't wait for the rest if it!!

Jodi (Bodenhofer) Wickham Pritchett Update

Love brings you to new atmosphere of Harmony……The big picture takes a lifetime to build!!!
 
5 years ago my life changed forever.  The love of my life passed away unexpectedly.  This was no easy task to get through and left my heart broken and aching.  I picked up all the pieces and continued to live life with a heart full of song.  The love we shared kept me going through the darkest of times.
About 6 months after Wayne passed away. I met a handsome man named Ben Pritchett.  He sure was beyond a miracle in my mind.  He just got me without any questions he loved me for me and not who I use to be.  I in turn loved him for being who he was as well.   We fell in love and then never looked back.  I fell like it was inspired but either way we make a great pair.  We were married on April 2, 2010 a few years after we met.  Together we have 8 children.  Ryon 17, Haylee 16, Brody 13, Kelsey 13, Devon 11, Kaitlyn 11, Hayden 8 and, the caboose is Emarie at 7.  His are in blue and mine are in Black.  Amazing!!!  


In the last 5 years I have been going to school for the first time since High School working on my Associate Degree at the moment.   I have been going for over 2 years now I think I will be going for the rest of my life.  I love to learn and hope to continue learning so many wonderful things.   Along with raising 8 kids I have my hands full (=

I am truly the luckiest girl in the world.  To have so much joy at the same time of such sadness makes you see everything quite differently.  Don’t take this life for granted…….Change and grow and one day you will look back and see that you did make a difference in this life after all!!!
Can’t wait to see you all at the 15 year reunion!!!
