Duckwater Shoshon Tribe: Resignation 1985

May 30, 1985 I went back to work after traveling to Utah.  I had accepting a job with Utah State Social Services in Roosevelt.  About the first thing I did after getting back to work was to type a resignation letter.
As I was typing it Mary Lou Gomes, my supervisor, looked at it and said "Oh, no."  I remember my emotions that day were really mixed.  I was happy about the new job, moving back to Utah; but also had some strange feelings about leaving.  It was really happiness, but also a feeling of sadness on top of that; a feeling I was letting people down.  On top of that was a bitter-sweet feeling about having to say goodbye to so many people.
