Title A Miracle Operation
Description laid by Tom and Harmon. Because of the unique rock work, this chapel has become an interesting tourist attraction." The nurse asked, "What did they do to your brother who shot him?" "Everyone knew it was an accident. The Sheriff made Harmon gel the gun from the creek where he had thrown it in disgust. I don't know if he was punished except by his own remorse. He spent many hours at Tom's bedside and tried to make amends for what he had done." I asked, "How did Dr. Brooks know how to perform that kind of operation. Wasn't it very unusual?" The nurse said almost reverently, "Dr. Brooks was an army doctor in World War 1 in France. He had performed hundreds of that kind of operation and saved the lives of many of our soldiers. He was in Ephraim a short time and then left to practice at a hospital. Dr. Brooks was a very great surgeon. 1 learned many things from him. I've been working at this hospital for more than ten years. I'll always remember that night. Thanks for telling me what you remember. Now. you need some rest, but sometime write all about it, please." More good things can be said about Tom. He worked in the munitions plant in Salt Lake City during World War II. He joined the army and served as a refrigeration technician in Alaska until the war ended. His wife had many health problems and he cared for her until reluctantly he look her to a hospital far the care he could not give her. When he retired, he spent many days in the Manti Temple doing work there. In the winter he attended the Temple in the morning and went cross-country skiing in the afternoon. Often he was alone, but sometimes Ray Cox or John Henry Nielsen joined him. He was a faithful member of the Church, but never held any important positions. He was good to all of his family and spent many happy times with his sons and their families. He was especially attentive to his mother, who was a widow for eighteen years. He was a quiet and unassuming person. Everyone who knew Tom loved and respected him. 85
