I can not believe what I have done. I was trying to down load the pictures on my camera memory to my SD card, and some how deleted everything off of it.
I wish I could say it was no big deal, but this card had pictures that I can not replace.
My son going into the Mission Training Center (MTC), a video that my father did to my children while he was in the hospital, pictures of my dad and I, my family reunion, pictures of the St. George Temple. It had the cemetery in Pine Valley, Utah where many of Kirk's ancestors are buried. I have wanted to go there for years and finally did just a few months back. Picutres of my nieces & nephews, while I was in Arizona in June, and a picture of my brothers and sister and I together, it was the first time we had been together since our brother Bruce passed away.
I also catalog cemeteries, and had a small cemetery in the Basin Valley that I had been working on, that I had not finished and so I still had not downloaded the pictures yet. Memorial Day pictures...and I know I am still forgetting other things.
So, yea...I am SICK...I just want to cry.
UPDATE: This is a portion of Kira's email today....
So I did have a really bad day this week…I cried like a baby. All of my pictures from Salta were on a computer in the offices and one of the elders was suppose to make me a disc and I have been waiting super patiently…and evidently all the pictures got deleted. I had already deleted my Memory Card…I am serious. I almost died. It was one of the worst feelings in the world. It was like a member of the family had died. I just kept thinking that I lost all of those memories…there were pictures that only I had that now I will never get to see again. And to top it off…they were all of Hna Picketts pictures too so not only did I feel bad for myself…but also the fact that she didn’t have any of the pictures. I cried really bad. It was aweful. I am still trying to get over it a bit…but I tried smiling and we went out and taught….So I am going to be waiting super patiently this week to hear from Hna Pickett to see if she by chance made a CD before she left Salta. I am not going to lie…I have been praying that she has…and if not I will be making a CD of everyone else’s pictures. Super Sucky.
