That is interesting. I am always curious to know things, like - did they "date" like you do when your younger, or did they just know each other really well from other things? I mean, how does an apostle do it, he has so little time it seems. That is neat for her - she was never married and had no children, and now she has 10 children, 56 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren!
Now I am just waiting for Sheri Dew to find an amazing man to marry, too! But even if she doesn't, she seems to have enough spiritual strength to make it to the next life before getting married.
