I would like to pay a special tribute to my parents - Robert Ellison and Elva Emily Koyle Smith. They have both passed on to live with their Heavenly Father. Today would have been their birthday. They shared the same birth date. My father was born five years before my mother and they chose to be married on their special day seventy-one years ago today.

These two people raised me in the LDS church and taught me to obey the commandments. They always taught me the difference between right and wrong. I was given many opportunities and they always looked out for my welfare. I could not have asked for more loving parents. These are the two people that I owe my life to, and I will cherish my memories of them for many years.

Very nice tribute. I'm sorry you don't still have them with you. And I think Dorthea looks a lot like your mom.
