I really did get a gem of a guy when I married Roland. He is so thoughtful and compassionate. For every year we were living in Utah, Roland would make or purchase valentines for my mom and my sisters. We would drive to my mom’s house in Midvale and then my brother’s in Sandy (my sister-in-law, Sunny) and then later to the house in Kearns after Kayla and Bill were married.
Valentine’s was always something different. A box of chocolates or homemade cookies. One year we attempted Brigham Young Doughnuts in the shape of hearts.

post so her is a scrapbook page I had made.
Another year he purchased pizzas from Papa Murphy’s. I think Brian (Sunny’s youngest boy) claimed that as his own. Perhaps he shared.
Before we moved to Oregon, Roland extended his valentine giving beyond my family, but included all the single sisters in the West Valley ward (and there were A LOT of single sisters) with a candy bar with a note not to go nuts on valentine’s day but enjoy the sweet parts about it (or something like that)
Since we moved to Oregon, his Valentine giving hasn’t gone beyond me and Jaime. That’s too bad because I know he really enjoyed that. I wonder if my sisters miss getting Valentines from him.
