Clearance Story - Jen's Perspective
This story all begins on September 14, 2005. Greg and I had made the decision to get married the next time he was in town which would be October 15th (Sweetest Day). I called the
Greg’s Stake President
This was going to be a tall order to fill. With diligence and speed Greg managed to have all interviews and get all letters and all required documentation to his bishop within one week. Knowing speed was of an essence, Greg’s bishop sent everything to
Greg was flying to
About 5:30 p.m. I was heading to the airport to meet Greg’s plane. My cell phone rang. It was President Holt. He said that he had spoken with the office of the First Presidency and our clearance was approved. He also indicated that he spoke with Greg’s stake president and that even though we had no paperwork to show up tomorrow to be sealed and he would take care of the paperwork at a later time. I don’t think you could smile any bigger than I was. I could barely wait for Greg’s plane to land.
But it did and with little trouble ( a small tux issue that was fixed) we were married and sealed together for time and all eternity as scheduled on October 15th at 1:30 p.m. This was definitely the sweetest day.
I have heard that we were the talk of the temple for a very long time. A clearance in three weeks!!! This doesn’t happen often. Well….now no one can say that we weren’t meant to be together.
I love you baby!!!
