20: To my husband, December 2010 You know I am not a very good writer so I hope I can put my feelings on paper and make sense. I am so very blessed in my life, and I also knew it the day I met you. I can still remember the feelings I had when you called me for a second date. I was so excited. When I met you I was sure that I was in love. It was just so easy to become friends. Bishop Grace said you were tall, dark and handsome and he was right. You are strong for me and a good example. I firmly believe the Lord was mindful of us when he matched us up, because we are a good balance I think. You have always set a great example in living the gospel and I am so grateful for that. Your strength as a priesthood leader is what makes our family work. I thank Heavenly Father for the solid role you play in raising our family. We both have truly grown in the gospel as we have supported each other. We have changed over the years, but the Savior has always been the center of our lives. We have had our struggles and our great times and I hope to have many more with you. I think we tend to take a lot for granted even in our relationship. It is easy to lose each other as we are constantly focusing on so many other things. We don't communicate as well as we should and it is easy to let pride get in the way. I hope we stay close and continue to work on our relationship as a couple. I know we will be blessed if we do. Thank you so much for loving me in spite of myself and my quirks. You have always been so patient with me and my animal habit, and for that I thank you. It is good for my soul. But, you know that because you let me have them. Most of all I am so thankful to you for an eternal family. I am glad we were worthy to start a family together the right way, with an eternal marriage. I love you so very much honey and I hope you know that I do. I am obnoxious sometimes and I know it. Thank you for being patient with me for the most part. I know it can be hard. Just know how much I truly do love you. All my love, Brooke
21: Brooke; December 2010 Sean asked me to write a letter to you and I asked him what I was supposed to say and he said to say anything that I want. So I am going to say anything that I want and no one can tell me if it is right or wrong because it is what I am going to say. As I remember back over the last 26 years of my life I can honestly tell you that you are the best thing that has ever happened to me in my life. As a young man growing up and thinking about the future and who I was going to marry, I always wanted to marry someone as good as you are. You are a blessing in my life and I love you for that. I remember back to the day that I met you for the very first time. As I walked up to your door and knocked on the door, I was pretty nervous and did not know what to expect. I can honestly tell you that after the very first date I was very impressed and it did not take me long to know that I wanted to be with you and that you would be my wife someday. The spirit bore a witness to me that you were the right one for me and that I should do whatever it took to be with you forever. As the years have gone by, we have had good times and we have had some difficult times. I guess that is the way that we grow. We have worked through our difficulties and become better because of them and then worked to not have them again. I think that we have done a pretty good job with regards to that. I have always appreciated all the little things that you do to make our home a piece of heaven on earth. What a great example you have been to me in doing whatever it takes to keep our home tidy and clean and I have always appreciated your willingness to do this even after you have had a hard day with the kids or at school. I know that I have not helped out as much as I should have or as much as you thought I should have but I have been trying lately a little bit harder to do this. I am sorry for not doing this sooner in our marriage. I appreciate your love and devotion to me and our family. You are a great example to me and I would not trade the time that we spend together for anything else in the world. I can honestly say that I would rather be with you and the kids than anyone else in the whole world. That is what family is all about, learning to grow together and wanting the best for each other and putting the other first in your life. I hope that you feel that I have done this because I know that you have done this for me and the kids. I love you for this and all that you do for me. I want to tell you that I love and appreciate you. When you call me during the day and check on me, I really appreciate this. When I hear your voice on the phone and you ask how I am doing, it makes me grateful for the time that we have spent together and the time that we are spending together. And as I have all ready said, I would rather not be with anyone else for time and all eternity than you. I love you and always will. Love you forever, Doug
