Life: Still Rewarding

Hello Dear Reader,
Grandpa (Wesley) Carter had devoted so much time to his calling as bishop that, when he was released, at first he was at a loss as to what to do with his spare time. But that feeling didn't last long. He took a volunteer coaching position for boys in pony-league baseball. At the same time he completed construction of the duplex then was recruited to build a subdivision for Bushnell Reality. In January he was chosen to serve as the alternate member of the Provo City Board of Adjustment and was commended for some work he did for the city. So he was involved in sports, the construction business, government, and his family.

It was soon time for the official adoption of Billy. The procedure took place in the Fourth Judicial Court of the State of Utah, in and for Utah County, 2 May 1958. Judge Tuckett presiding. Then on June 26 Grandpa, Grandma, and Billy made the trip to Salt Lake City to the temple where Spencer W. Kimball, then a member of the Council of the Twelve, sealed them together as a family at 3 o'clock pm. Life was still rewarding.
