    What a delightful and touching story. There were tears of sadness, tears of joy and big smiles and a couple of giggles while I read this. It's stories like this that makes life more worth it and I hope they will continue to stay close, be forgiving and love with all of their heart.

    This is a wonderful, if complicated story. When the two sons I raised heard they had a half-brother, one commented, "Oh good, we have another brother. Does he like guns?"

    He does.

    Skip did serve in the area you listed. It looks as if one of his new found brothers owns a company. I'd try getting in touch with them (I'm sure they're aware of your comments and are anticipating it).

    Thanks NeilT for trying to help me. I think Elder Dopp would be about 65 years old now since he would have been about 9 years older than me at the time we were baptized - I was 10 yrs old. It would be so lovely to catch up after all this time.

    Mumsy 57 I grew up in Logan, same ward as Skip. The Logan 3rd Ward Cache Stake. I think Nathan is Skips father. I have no idea where they are now. Haven't heard from them in years. I am sure they moved away. I think Nathan was in the bishopric and worked at the Logan Post Office. Maybe that helps a little.

    Such a wonderful story. My family joined the LDS church in Dalby in Australia, 46 years ago and the missionaries who taught us were Elder Nathan Dopp and Elder Glen Wade. I believe that "Skip" could be "our" beloved Elder Dopp and I would love to get in touch with him personally. How should I go about this?
