Letter from Don Ivon Peay

Contributor: JamesAnderson Created: 11 months ago Updated: 11 months ago

January 22, 2002 Hi Hopie, I'm not much of a letter writer but I wanted to write to you today. I was thinking about a family in our ward, they have not been active for a while, but they are really great people. They are raising her brothers two boys since he passed away last year. They are 9 and 11 and haven't been baptized yet. I have been trying to think of ways we might get them interested in the church and some things that might interest them. I was thinking back to my own childhood and what I did when I was younger and brought back some fond memories. You were such a great part of my life, getting to go down to your house and stay when Mother and Dad went to Mexico, when we went to your place to eat and the men were outside turning the Ice Cream maker, and when I finally got old enough to do it. The rumble seat of your car. Coming down to your house on Christmas mornings. The trashers coming and everyone turning out to help. Hauling hay and putting it in the barn. Another thing was picking up all those walnuts and putting them in the top of the grainery where Larry said they had to dry. Of course never did crack them. The day Gary went with us to the creek to swim and told mother that we went swimming "bare laked". The time Gary took me to get some groceries for mom on his horse Toni and the horse dumped us and groceries off on 9th west. I remember the camping trips in the trailers and sitting around the campfires, the fun times I had hunting with Larry, Gary, and Ted. Oh how I looked forward to the Elk and deer hunt with Gary. We really enjoyed each other, he was the only brother I knew and I loved him very much. I haven't gone hunting but once since he passed away, it's just not the same. I think back on the way we always helped each other, if he had a job to do I was there for him, and he was always there for me. We worked off and on the job together and always enjoyed being together. He was a very special person. I know you and Charlotte miss him very much and so do I but the Lord had other things for him to do. I just wanted you to know these things that are in my heart and are hard for me to express out loud. Your family is very special to me and I just wanted you to know how much. It's hard to believe that I will be 68 years in a couple of months, where did the time go? It seems like yesterday that we were doing all those wonderful things together. We are having a wonderful mission. The people here are so good to us. Every Sunday we go out to eat with the members and it's just like Thanksgiving all over again. They are wonderful cooks. We have had so many things happen to us like going to a home and the people will tell us they have been praying for us to come. I know this is where we should be at this time in our lives. God wants us here. What a great opportunity to serve him and the people here. What's funny is that we feel that we are the ones that are getting the blessings for just being here. I'm sitting here watching the squirrels. Three of them eating an ear of corn on our back deck. I put out an ear of corn each morning for them and then we watch the floor show they put on for us. We have blue jays and cardinals and other different kind of birds, they are different than we have at home and are really beautiful. I had better close for now, we have to a zone conference in Owingsville this morning. It lasts all day. I have put in a tape for you. Some members gave it to us so we had a copy made for you. I just wanted you to know what an influence you have had on my life and how much I love you. Love, Elder Peay (Don)
