History: David William Rowley

ESTELLA – She has been my comfort, counselor and confidante. As she always says – she had worked at trying to build up my ego. We all need to have a sense of our own worth or we can’t be happy. She likes to sing too. She used to sing solos at church and school. She doesn’t have a big voice but I like to sit beside her and listen as she sings the songs of praise to the Lord. She does appreciate me as her Priesthood head and honors and supports me in my church callings. Estella, you have been a lot of inspiration to me in many ways. Your love and faith in me means so much and your desire to help promote the work of the Lord. I know that I am not so much for words to express my love and gratitude for the many ways you help me. I am thankful that the Lord was mindful of us and sent you to me. I love you very much and will forever.

History: David William Rowley

TO ALL MY CHILDREN – The raising of you children was a wonderful experience from babies to growing up and having families of your own. It had been an experience I will always remember with love in my heart. I know we had our privations and hard times, especially during the depression, but hard times are good for us. It makes us think and work harder and appreciate what we have more. It is hard for me not to be able to furnish my family with everything they needed, but you all survived.

GRANT – He was our last and he finished out our family just right. This little blond, blue-eyed boy fit into our arms and our hearts in a way that helped to ease the hurt of losing our Sharon. His oldest brother, David, was especially fond of him. It was mainly for Grant’s health, as all the family knows, that we moved to California. I am so glad that he overcame his allergies and has good health now.

I am very proud of him for sticking with it until he got his degree from college. I am thankful that he is working for the Church. He is such a good husband and father. It surely is nice to see him with children to love. I am grateful for the testimony that you have, Grant, and I want you to know that I love you with all my heart!
