A story of the legacy of the deck that Elder Saunders and his dad built or if you build it, they will come

The farewell luncheon was held on Aug 30, 2015 after church at Elder Saunders Home. The previous 4 weeks were spent as a labor of love trying to get the deck built. It was twice as big and 10 times more sturdy than the previous deck. Side by side, for many days, Father and son worked hard to complete it. Chandler Peterson, JD Baker, Grant Alvey and Brother Hurst were a blessing to pitch in and help. The night before his talk and farewell brunch , they finished in the dark. Many friends and family did come and we were so thankful for the outpouring of love from each of them. The deck stands as a beautiful reminder, now that he has left to go to the MTC, of the love and sacrifice a father and son made and finished for all to enjoy and many memories to come.
