The Littlest Missionaries
Erik was cute, to be sure, but he was too young for the white-shirt-and-tie bit. It’s fair to say that the sisters in the Home were better tuned in to his charm than were the Elders.

And then Erik was always something of a barf-bucket. Valerie relates that Elder Romney once picked him up, tossed him gently in the air, remarked on his cuteness, and passed him quickly to his companion (Elder Bill Ryan, I think), who then had to have his suit cleaned…

Valerie says she took the square pictures below, but that she doesn’t recall with what camera. Their format and quality makes me suspect she got her hands on the Mission’s Rolleiflex, which I had rather neglected, half a decade earlier.
