Title Remembering My Parents with Love and Appreciation
Description Mother Lillie was an excellent cook and housekeeper. She was very strict in her beliefs and character, but we all adjusted well, and it was good to be a family, continuing our holiday and birthday parties Christmas time was always happy, with all the grandchildren coming home to Grandpa's, something we all remember and talk about. She made many friends and loved to entertain, something I'm sure she learned from my father, for he loved having all the family come home, and to have their many friends here often My father continued to serve in city and Church He was appointed Fountain Green City Mayor and served four terms He loved music and drama, and we often went to Salt Lake City to attend the fine Cultural Arts there We lived in Salt Lake City while my brother and I attended two years of school My father built a beautiful brick home for my mother while she could still enjoy it, and in 1917 he built another new home on Main Street that we all love He continued to play the cello in the orchestra, two different instruments in the City band Self-taught, he was. and loved to sing in the choir, but he was a modest man, and never pushed himself forward, but was always willing to serve He loved children and they loved him He also loved to give generously to the less fortunate than he A writer once penned, "Every man has two responsibilities which he must face courageously and successfully. The first is to make an honest living and to help others do the same The second is building a good life To do these things is a master achievement" My father filled these two responsibilities well His love for his home town was great, as was his love for his country. Church, and people He and my mothers were persons of integrity and honor, with high standards and ideals They taught by example. They have a posterity of over 400 descendants, many filling missions for the church; many are doctors, musicians, teachers, parents and homemakers This is my tribute to my father " A rock of strength to lean upon in time of joy or stress. An understanding, loyal soul with a heart of tenderness A mind of wisdom, knowing how justice and love to blend, A teacher, by example, loving and kind My Father and My Friend." I know him best of my parents, for I have known him much longer To my mother who gave me life, I thank her I love her for her goodness, her faith and kindness. She, too, was an example to follow. 32
