Title Heritage Happenings

Our daughter and her husband are also carrying on these same principles in their home, he having served a mission also and did work as a worker in the London Temple for some of these very decendants.

Of course, you can, Your decendants, these great people of yesterday did and we, like they, have the "WILL" to DO and DARE! So - dare to dream and look ahead, dare to see the vision of tomorrow by being industrious and courageous, your own before you had WARS and rumors of wars, too.
