Title Andrew Peter's Promise
Description to bowls of bread and milk and sank into bed and exhausted sleep. It was late in the forenoon before the Olsen were able to get on their way toward Ferron. Their problems were not over as they encountered roads that had been washed out. The mud and water caused some mechanical problems with their cars. Martha was afraid they would never reach Ferron in time for the funeral. Andrew Peter and the boys were so cowered with mud they didn't look very presentable to be going into a church, she thought. Martha rubbed some of the mud from It was very quiet as the group stopped their cars by the small adobe church in Ferron. The hearse with its two white horses find several other cars and buggies were standing by the fence where the mud had been scraped away for the mourners to park. As she climbed out of the car, Martha lifted her eyes to a ray of light pushing its way through the clouds. Andrew Peter led the way as they entered the church. They could see the Bishop standing at the pulpit and the rest of the congregation standing. The funeral was over. As the Bishop saw the door open and the Olsens enter, he announced to the audience, "Here are the Kesko's from Sanpete." There was handshaking, embracing and words of welcome for Andrew Peter, Martha and the others. The body of Peter Ali, Nels, and their families never forgot that when Andrew Peter made a promise, he kept it. Source: A true story told to the author by Ali Olsen, 92, of Ephraim, Utah -30-
