After my mission was finished, I moved towhere my future wife was living. I had first met her while serving in , and we met again after she had moved to SLC a couple of weeks before I had my accident. She heard about it and visited me while I was at LDS hospital. Six months after I was released we started dating and we married in the Logan temple a year after that. We have had a wonderful life together. We had 2 daughters in SLC while I attended the U of U, and UTC. I graduated with a certificate in machine shop and have been working as a machinist since then. We moved to where we had our son. I later found work in and moved to where we stayed until 2003.
After 18 years I found myself out of work because the company I worked for decided to get away from manufacturing and to vend the work out doing assembly and test only. Because I had married a girl fromI my support base extended there also. My bro-in-law called me up when he saw a ad for a job in . I sent the company a copy of my resume and they ended up relocating me there. We have lived here since then and love it out here. Our daughters stayed in and have since married. My wife and I are grandparents to the cutest grandchildren. I still have a strong testimony of the gospel, and give thanks for the blessing it has been of fulfilling my mission to the SDRCM. As I look back on my life, I plainly see the Lord’s hand in getting me where I am today.
