Wednesday September 3, 2014 Dear Family, Greetings to each and every member of this wonderful family. Grant and I have celebrated the event of our 65th wedding anniversary with joy and happiness. We are so very thankful for each other and the fact that we are still here on this earth together. Each day is to be cherished and is cherished. We thank you for any part you played in making this such a memorable occasion for us. We especially thank you for the lovely memory quilt. This will be cherished forever. Today we will go to the Temple in Provo and feel the peaceful sweet feeling of our Savior and His love for us and remember the great day we had of being all together there in that wonderful place. Ooh! how blessed we are. Thank you all for making this great time for us such a joy. The feeling of joy and happiness we experienced in the Temple last Saturday, being there in that wonderful spot on earth with so many of our family members was wonderful. As we sat in the chapel waiting for others to come the feeling of waiting on the other side for each of you to come became a very prominent thought. The exhilarating feeling as you came into the chapel and the happiness of receiving a hug, a smile or a greeting of some kind was beyond description. What a wonderful day we experienced. Our only wish and lament of course is that everyone could have been there with us. Our earthly responsibilities and livelihoods and circumstances prohibit us from doing things we would dearly love to do I know that from my own experience. But know that you are all loved, cherished and thought of continually and we missed you being with us. We pray each day that you will be blessed in all your doings. To those of you who are young and growing under the great influence of the Gospel in your homes, be thankful that you have the great parents and family to teach you the Gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-Saints for this is the only way, and I mean the only way, that we will be able to be together as a family and with our Heavenly Father in peace and love and happiness. The love we feel for each new spouse and family created is joyful and happy. Each new baby brought in to these families is a wonderful blessing that you all will benefit by. We certainly are thrilled with these new little ones. They are very special spirits. We feel privileged to have them come to our family. The Gospel is true and we love the Lord our Savior Jesus Christ for His Atoning sacrifice for each of us. May this day and always be dominated by the spirit of our Heavenly Father and His love for us. We love you all Maxine and Grant
