Trivia - Once upon a time Mr. Right was engaged to the beautiful daughter of an apostle. But it was during the depression, so Mr. Right made the decision to delay marrying his beloved.
Then one day Mr. Right received a note where his beloved told him she had married another man. But hope lived in Mr. Right's heart, because the husband of his beloved was not a church going man. So, while the beloved had married another, she was not sealed to her husband.
In time Mr. Right married, but his wife died in childbirth. Mr. Right took his daughter to the beloved and begged her to be the mother of his child. But the husband of the beloved advised against it, because the beloved was herself the mother of many children and recovering from a dire illness.
The decades passed and still the beloved lived and still the man she was married to refused to take her to the temple. So hope continued to burn in the heart of Mr. Right. In his old age, Mr. Right knew that he was dying. He bared his soul to the wife of his maturity and told her of his love for his beloved. "If my beloved is willing to marry me, will you free me for time so that I can become her husband?" And the wife of Mr. Right agreed. But when Mr. Right put his proposal to the beloved, he learned that his hope had been vain. For the beloved was unwilling to leave her husband for Mr. Right.
Mr. Right died. And eventually the husband of the beloved died. And one year after their grandfather's death, the grandchildren of the beloved came to her. Grandmother, we want you to be sealed to our grandfather, they said. And so the beloved was sealed to her husband of over 60 years.
The month before the beloved died, her grand-daughter asked the truth about Mr. Right. For the grand-daughter was a nosy so and so who liked to know the truth of things. Thus it was that the grand-daughter obtained the dying testimony of the beloved that Mr. Right's intentions were innocent, merely kind words from an old friend.
