Weddings happen! Even when missionaries are serving, weddings happen. No, missionaries don’t get to attend the wedding (even when it’s held right next door at the Gilbert Temple). What’s a family to do?
The Shirleys, Kevin and Jacque, have their son serving in the mission. They dropped by to say hello and pick up some of Elder Shirley’s things – on their way to the wedding of their son (Matzen) in the Gilbert temple about 15 minutes from the mission home. While there, they displayed for us the (almost) life-sized cardboard cut out of Elder Shirley – their fearless pole vaulter turned terrific missionary – who was well represented in the wedding photos!
Thanks for sharing Elder Shirley with us!
