And So It Began

This is the door leading into the Neitsytpolku Ward chapel in downtown Helsinki. On the other side is where Dad was standing when this gorgeous blonde walked in and he first met Mom.

This is inside the train station, where Dad ran into Mom after first meeting her at church. He seized the moment and asked her to get drinks of juice together.

Dad had served a mission in Finland some five years previous and was chatting with some of the current missionaries.

As he went off with that knock-out beauty, he called out to the poor guys who wouldn't have a date for months yet, "Eat your heart out, elders."
