They were sealed together in the Salt Lake Temple on April 21, 1950.Aloha was a wonderful cook and seamstress. She loved to serve others, always taking a loaf of bread or dinner to someone in need. She spent hours in her garden and particularly loved her roses. An active member of LDS Church all her life, she served in my positions including RS and Primary President.
