We met at the Institute of Religion In December 1971 when we were both asked to play our guitars for a performance at B.C. Don't be shocked that we both played the guitar. David has a really nice Gibson, which he played a lot more in those days, probably to impress the girls(me). He also had a beard and wore a really soft leather coat. So we got to know each other a little while rehearsing, and then went our separate ways for Christmas brake. I went to Utah to visit friends after Christmas and thought about him the whole time. When I got back, he asked me out. We went to Mexicali on our first date, for lunch. He had an Easter egg blue '69 Volkswagon with an eight-track tape player on which we played John Denver and folk music, which was very popular in those days. Since his return from his mission, David had decided he would never date the same girl twice in a row and had stuck to it, even though it sometimes meant pretty creative dating. I was told that after he met me, he broke this rule. On June 1, 1972 (he picked this date so he could remember it easily) after asking my dad's permission, he proposed. We were married September 16, 1972 in the Los Angeles Temple. The picture above is the one we sent out with our wedding announcement. It's impossible for me to express how much I love David and why, but he KNOWS. We have been truly blessed through the years we've been together and are so fortunate to have a wonderful family. We receive a great amount of joy in our posterity and look forward to serving in the temple together and on missions after David retires.
