Today we did a 3:00 session in the Temple with Dale and Connie.
We had dinner at the Depot Grill because Dale wanted to talk with the owners who schedule the Twin Falls Turf Club for class reunions.  Dale has been asked to chair our 60th Wendell High School Class Reunion for this summer.  He did a great job as the chair of our 50th WHS Class Reunion in 2007.  
    How can it be ten years since then?
    How can it be 60 years since we graduated from high school???

Here's Verla's husband's obituary -- Murk Lancaster who was the bishop that Walt's Dad was a counselor for from 1961-1965, until Murk was called into the Gooding Stake Presidency in 1965.  We all loved Bishop, and then President Lancaster.
Murlen “Murk” Lancaster 
     Murlen “Murk” Robert Lancaster, 88, a resident of Wendell, passed away Monday, January 28, 2013 at his home in Wendell.
     Murk was born on September 1, 1924, to George R. and Mary A. Gold Lancaster.  He was raised and educated in Wendell.
     Murk married Verla Christensen on October 24, 1946 in Wendell, Idaho.
     Murk was an avid hunter and fisherman, and he especially enjoyed fishing trips at the Richfield Canal.  He attended Wendell athletic events for 80 years, and even in poor health, he continued to support his grandchildren and the Wendell Athletic Program.
     He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the American Legion, and the VFW.
     A few of the significant events in Murk’s life were being sealed as a family in the Idaho Falls Temple; the birth of each of his children; the call to High Council at age 33, Bishop at age 37, and a member of the Stake Presidency at age 41.
     Vacations and family home evenings were some of his fondest memories.  Murlen was married to the love of his life, Verla, for 66 years, and they knew each other for over 80 years.  They loved to dance with each other.  They loved the church and spent countless hours serving together.  Their service included a mission to the West Indies, and nearly 13 years as temple workers in the Boise Temple.  Murlen also especially enjoyed serving as the Wendell Stake Patriarch for many years with Verla as his assistant.
     Murlen is survived by his loving wife, Verla, of Wendell, Idaho; 3 sons, Jack R. (Debbie) Lancaster, of Wendell, Idaho; Kevin R. (Laurie) Lancaster, of Wendell, Idaho; and Alan R. (Camille) Lancaster, of Jerome, Idaho; 2 daughters, Nancy L.

Darrell and MaryAnn Roskelley gave a wonderful report on their 18-month mission to the Texas Ft. Worth Mission, spending their year and a half in Kileen, Texas teaching Institute and working with the Young Single Adults.

We share testimony with them that The Church of Jesus Christ is true, restored to the earth in 1830 by the Prophet Joseph Smith, through Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father is the father of our spirits, and we have a Heavenly Mother who is not talked about in scripture because our Heavenly Father does not want Her Name to be blasphemed as is His Name and the Name of His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ.

Thomas S. Monson is God's Living Prophet for the whole earth today.

The Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ, as the Bible is the Testament of the Divinity of Jesus Christ.

Of these truths we testify, in the Name of Jesus Christ, amen.
