One of my favorite stories about my Father...
My dad was serving as Branch Pres. in Plainview Texas at the time, I was about 16 and you know how 16 year olds are! Well, my friend was having a pool party on Sunday and I HAD to go! EVERYONE was going to be there! I asked if I could go and of course my Father told me NO. I mean, it was the Sabbath... BUT... I was 16. Everyone was going to be there! I could not miss out! So, I tried again, "Dad, I won't wear a swim suit, I wont get in the water!" Again, the answer was a firm no. NO swim parties on the Sabbath. ...I would NOT let it go, one more try. Dad, PLEEEEASSSEEE!!!!! He said, "Okay, I will make you a deal. You can go to the swim party if I can go out behind the barn and have ONE cigarette." !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAD HE LOST HIS MIND????? uh, needless to say... that was it. It was over. He made his point.
My dad has always been a hard worker. He is a great man and a wonderful example to me. I am who I am today because of him. He always supported me, always. THANK YOU DAD, I LOVE YOU!

I also want to say THANK YOU to my handsome, darling, wonderful hubby who is a GREAT father to MY children!!! Thank you Brad! The boys LOVE you, they all want to grow up to be JUST like you! You are awesome!
And, last but certainly not least, I would like to THANK my Father in law who raised a wonderful son! (my cute hubby!) You, too, are an example of what a righteous Priesthood holder is! THANK YOU!
