I remember my first introduction to the family was when Sherwood and Anne Marie were serving their mission in Mexico. I proposed to his daughter Jenifer and felt I was pretty safe in doing so, until Sherwood sent his oldest daughter Terilyn from Tennessee to see if I was good enough for one of his only “true daughters”. I must have received a passing grade from the professors when Terilyn reported to him that the chemistry or DNA was in working order. Then the day came when I got to meet Sherwood and AnneMarie and soon realized that Sherwood love to stir the pot. That only lasted for a short time when Anne Marie gave him the look. I soon found favor with Sherwood when he said my five children and I were some of the blessing that came from their mission.
Sherwood was a good example of a worthy priesthood holder that I never had while growing up. Thank you for your example and the Priesthood blessing you gave me before your passing. I will always remember those tender moments that we got to spend with you just after conference. Thank you. Until we meet again as a family.
Love your son-in-law
P.S. Sherwood, I am still taking care of your daughter as much as she will let me! One independent women :)
