1977 Sister/Friend

Lori Gay & Cari Lyn
1977
     Lori is on the left and Cari on the right.  It's 1977 near the 24th of January their tenth birthday.  One of my favorite pictures before the teen years.

     Both Lori and Cari graduated from BYU at different years; both graduated Summa Cum Laude.

     Another year has gone by since the death of our Cari.
     She accomplished so much in her short life and had so many plans to do more that would benefit those who knew her.  She is missed by the many people she knew. Earl and I have received several phone calls and a few emails over the last years since her passing in 2009, asking about her only to have tell them she is deceased.  Each friend, whether they knew her from her mission in the Netherlands, or knew her from one of the Universities or was a 'climbing' friend from Germany all had wonderful                                                                                                                                   memories of being with Cari.

     Cari graduated from BYU in 1992 with a G.P.A.3.96
and was named as the "Most Outstanding History Student"

     In 1995 she got her M.A. in History from Indiana University.

2003 she received a Teacher's Certification. 
(Secondary School History/Social Studies) from the College of New Jersey.

2004 PhD. in History, Indiana University
Major: Modern European History
Minors: Modern Russian/Soviet History, the History and Philosophy of Science.
G.P.A. 3.91
