Gene said, "As my friends and I were walking up the stairs to enter the building, I could see inside the gym and people were dancing, it seemed like the crowd kind of parted and exposed the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. She was perfect. I looked at my friends and told them, 'That's the girl I'm going to marry.' They looked at each other and giggled, yeah right. As the months passed Gene stalked, begged, pleaded, argued, negotiated and finally recieved an answer from the Holy Ghost to aske her to be his wife. Gene and Carol married in the Idaho Temple on June 9th, 1978. Through the next ten years as the familly grew, Carol bore Angela, Joseph, Emma, Deanna, Belinda, Justin, Drew. Carol was in 7th Heaven.

They found a home they loved, settled into it and raised all their children in that home.
