My heartfelt wishes go out to LaVar, her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I visited LaMarr and LaVar in their home in St George several weeks ago and had a wonderful visit with them both.
Our conversations went back through many years of our experiences of many memories that we shared together, and how our lives had crossed many times through those early years but not so much for the recent past. It was wonderful to see the loving and caring feelings that they had for each other. I told them that I would return again soon, sorry that I didn't get there before LaMarr began having serious problems.
They will always be remembered by me and my family as well, as good and faithful friends.

One of my favorite memories of dad is when mom, dad, Brenda and myself went to Paris, France. We went to the famous Louvre Museum and stood in a tremendously long line of tourists to see the original Mona Lisa. There was a feeling of reverence as we crept closer and closer to the painting. When we were standing in front of her and overwhelmed with awe , all of a sudden in the silence dad started whistling the song MONA LISA sung by Nat King Cole. Who would have thought that dad would become more interesting than the Mona Lisa? It seemed that every eye in the Museum turned and stared at him instead. He was ALWAYS whistling.
I feel dad is of the same character as my favorite character in the Book of Mormon, Captain Moroni.
Yea, veril, verily I say unto you, if all men had been, and were, and ever would be, like unto Moroni, behold, the very powers of hell would have been shaken for ever; yea, the devil would never have power over the hearts of the children of men.
So I feel dad should be very happy indeed. I love and appreciate you dad and it will be a sweet reunion when we meet again. (I know it will easy to find you. I'll just follow your whistling. )
