That summer Virginia met a man from Twin Falls that she thought she was going to marry, so she moved over there in order for the girls to start school. In November we had an invitation to come up there for Thanksgiving. We went and we could tell that Bill was crazy about Virginia, but we had the feeling that she didn’t really love him. The turned out to be the case and her asking us to come up was really a call for help.

In a little while Estella went back there and on the 13 December Hubert and I took the Dat and a trailer and moved them down to Bountiful. The weather was threatening and our load was high and we sure prayed that we would make it back safely. We pulled in under the carport I had built and we were so tired that we just had something to eat and went to bed. The next morning there was about 8 inches of snow on the ground!

It really made Estella happy to have her daughter and her grandchildren living near. In March Virginia and I took the pickup and went back to Twin Falls and got her piano and some other things that she had left with a friend.

In the next June, Opal who had moved to Richfield from California, and Harold and Myrna Jean all came to our place to stay while they went to June Conference. Myrna Jean was in the Stake Relief Society and Harold was in the Bishopric and Opal was the head of the music in her ward. What a time they had together. They were all musicians and they played and sang and we sure enjoyed them.

Opal invited us to come visit and to bring Virginia and the children and so we did that summer. Cory had gone to Nampa to stay with his dad who had remarried. On our way down to Opal’s, Stella sat in the front seat. We all had a really good time. We went fishing over to Fish Lake and we spent one day hunting for nice rocks. We still have some of them. Virginia and Opal played and sang and visited and Opal fixed us sine really good meals. I helped get the weeds out of their garden. When we had to leave Rusty behind, he wouldn’t come out from under the bed, where we slept, until we came back. He was always this way with strangers.

Well, the time had come sooner than I wanted it and on 1 July 1969 I was retired from the David County maintenance crew. They held a kind of meeting for me and gave me a wrist watch. It was a good watch and I used it for a long time.

After I retired I jobbed around fixing up things on houses. Sometimes Estella helped me. It soon became clear that we could not stay in Bountiful and live on what income I had.

Marjorie let us know that her ward was looking for a custodian and we went down and had an interview with her Bishop, James May. He was a fine man and after a while we got the job. We moved Virginia into hour house and prepared to move to Provo. Thus I left the place o had lived for 13 years and began a new phase of my life.

This was a large chapel and took a lot of work. We started in August 1969. We rented a small house, at first, from Don Reese. It was just down the road from the chapel which made it really nice for us.

As soon as we got home from our visit with Ralph, I brought home the little dog, Rusty that I had been coaxing Estella to accept. She hadn’t seen him, but I told her how cute he was. He was a thoroughbred Pomeranian and was much loved by his family. They were moving to England and couldn’t take him with them. Rusty was very smart and very special and it didn’t take him long to win Estella’s heart and he became her dog. She was going to people’s homes at night to babysit and when she left Rusty would go under the bed and sob, then go to the window to see if she was coming. If he couldn’t see her he would go back under the bed and sob some more. When she came home she would pick him up and talk to him and you could see where the tears had been running down his face. If we scolded him for something he would do the same thing. He was quite a dog and real good company.

We got word that they thought the cobalt had killed the rest of Virginia’s tumor. The doctor had told Estella that they could never get all of the tumor without doing too much damage to her brain, but if the humor was benign it would dry up. However, their troubles were not over. Virginia had left Chad and her Aunt had bought a big mobile home and had moved it onto Harold’s property in New Plymouth, Idaho, for Virginia and her children to live in.

We received word that Harold and Myrna Jean had been blessed with another baby boy on 12 January 1968. He had dark hair and brown eyes and was a real sweetheart whom they named Terrel.

I began to realize that this was the last year for me to work. It seemed like the time had gone by too fast – that I just couldn’t be that old. We talked about what I might do after I retired. I thought it might be well for us to get a chapel to take care of, but Estella did not much of that idea at the time. We had agreed that we must get out of debt before I retired. We had been working and saving hard to get the place in Bountiful paid for. After I married Estella, we paid out about $9,000, to get it clear. We had a good boost from Grace when she paid the rest on the siding and roofing I had put on the side of the house. Then Estella’s sister Lavern had given us a long term loan of some money she had come into. We also sold Estella’s place in Nampa.

We decided to go to Idaho for Mother’s day that year. It was the first time I had been in New Plymouth and I was quite impressed with the little town and with Treasure Valley.

Virginia wanted us to sleep in her bedroom, but we ate most of our meals with Harold. Virginia seemed to be in good spirits. The hair hadn’t grown back on the sides of her head yet so she had made bands to match her dresses to wear around her head. Harold sang at the Mother’s Day program and Virginia played for him. We enjoyed seeing Harold’s and Virginia’s children together. We stayed at Archie’s on the way back and I marveled at how Janae was so good to help her mother.

In June, after we had our trip to Idaho, a new little red-headed boy came to Clayton and Jana, they named him Michael. We were glad to see that he was healthy and strong.

Finally on 18 July 1968, Dwana got her little sister. Dwain and Margie had a little girl they named Margene.
