Easter Sunday, March 25, 1951, was the day on which I planned to propose. And I did.
In the morning I took a taxi to her home where I met her in a lovely new Jumper that she had made herself for Easter. Her corsage had arrived in time for it to be worn to church. She looked lovely and the two red camillas went well with her Jumper.
Marge, Jerry, her sister, and I went to Sunday School together and enjoyed the Easter Program. We sat with Marge's class of girls while Marge took her place on the stand. She gave the second of four talks, which, with musical numbers made up the Easter Program.
Her talk was good and I was proud of her.
We took picutres after Sunday School and then Oliver, Bev, Harold, and Ellen picked us up and took us with them to the Easter Choral Service at the Tabernacle which began at 2:00. We enjoyed it.
Oliver met Marge and I off at my house where we talked to the folks a few minutes and then took the car to the New House Hotel for a Smorgasbord dinner in the Royal Room. It was very nice and I was happy to be able to take Marge there.
The food was good, we talked and ate until we were full, and left at about 7:30.
We drove through town from the New House Hotel, up 21st So. along the Alternate Highway from the mouth of Parley's to the mouth of Emigration Canyon, up past Brigham Young's Monument, through Emigration Canyon, down parley's Canyon, and back again to the Brigham Young Monument (That is the This Is The Place Monument" with him at the top, in the mouth of the Canyon). Here, overlooking the monument and the city we stopped and talked and she said she would be my wife.
We reached her home by a little before eleven o'clock, read some from Matthew and from the book on Marriage which she has, knelt together in prayer, and left just after midnight.
It had been a wonderful day and I was very happy. I was to have an angel for a wife. I was truly happy.
