This past September my dad retired from work. He had been working at The Church History Museum for over 25 years! I have some fond memories of visiting him at work with my mom and brother and sisters, of Bring-Your-Daughter-to-Work Day (does that still exist??), and going to exhibit open houses. I was sad when I quit working for the Church after only 6 years…I can’t imagine how it would feel after 26 years!

On the day of his retirement, he put on a presentation for some of the staff. The presentation included how he came to work for the Church (a miracle) and how his life and family have been blessed through his work.

At the end, he was presented with a special letter from the First Presidency of the Church thanking him for his many years of service. Wow. So neat.

Then there was the kids’ favorite part, refreshments!

We are sure dad is going to be missed at Church Headquarters, but we’re glad to have him around more. It’s probably not as relaxing as he thought retirement would be, but we hope he enjoys it.
