My Funny Valentine

Early in our marriage, I told my young dashing husband that when he got old he would look like S. Dilworth Young. We both thought highly of S. Dilworth Young, who was a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy, so it was a happy contemplation. We may even have met Elder Young once in conjunction with a Seminary and Institute Faculty Meeting. Paul began teaching Seminary in 1969 and Institute in 1972. In 1969, S. Dilworth Young was 72 years old—which is how old Paul is now.

Interestingly, “Dil” and Paul had several things in common, such as their involvement with The Boy Scouts of America, their poetry, and their wit.

So, I think I was almost spot-on. What do you think?
