TAUNTON MISSIONARY ALUMNI 

 

 
1974 Elder Terry W. DePriest 
 

It felt sad saying goodbye to Elder McEwan. Even after 35 years now in the church, missionary moves day often feels the same. 
At the time, it was a new Experience for a young boy. When it was Elder DePriest's turn to move, he gave me his Levi flared jeans which I wore with pride. No one else at 
school had a real pair of Levis, and certainly not American ones Which were already faded and aged. He also gave me a Mickey Mouse 
Tee shirt, which I cherished and wore well 
into when I was married. 
 
One day, the T shirt (now not much better 
than a rag, but still worn regularly) disappeared. 
 
My wife Nicola, still can’t remember throwing it out. I dont think she really new how much it meant. I still tell her off about it.
