I live in northern Utah and Barb lived in northeastern Wyoming (560 miles apart) so there was really little chance we would have ever met without ldsso. About a month later we decided we should meet in a neutral place. We decided that the Martin Cove handcart site would be a good place. We spent the day together and immediately felt as if we had known each other all our lives.
Numerous trips back and forth only confirmed our love for each other and on June 6th we were engaged. Barb's vacation time had already been set so we decided not to wait and set July 6th as our wedding date. That allowed us to use her vacation time for our honeymoon.
Together we have 12 children and 16 grandchildren. Since all of our children aren't married yet, more grandchildren are probably forthcoming.
As soon as we retire, we are looking forward to serving a full time mission wherever the Lord wants to send us.
For us, life is wonderful and we highly reccommend ldsso. It certainly worked for us!!
The end of the story is that Barb and I just returned from a cruise to Alaska after being married in the Bountiful Temple on Saturday July 6, 2002.
