Early memories of my dad, Orson Allen

Colaborador: whrsthebech Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

When I was very young, we needed to buy a car. I went with my day to talk to a man who was selling his used car. I had never met him before but he knew my dad. Dad started to explain to the man how he wanted to buy the car but didn't have all the money that he needed yet. The man stopped him, mid sentence, and said: "Orson, if I can't trust you, then I can't trust anyone. You can have the car and then pay me when you get the money". What a great example that has been to me throughout my own life. One of my fond memories of dad was how he liked to be happy. He loved to whistle a happy tune. He also loved to put us on his knee when he got home from work and spend some time with each of us. When I was just a few years old, while on my dad's knee, my mother told me that it was my dad's birthday. I wanted to give him a present but I certainly didn't have any money. So I asked dad if I could have a dime. I ran to the corner store and bought a handful of penny candy and brought it home to present to my dad. While on his lap, I asked if he would share some with me, which he did with a smile. I have often thought of that experience as a great comparison to our relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Another Birth in Grandma Cheney's Home

My dad, Orson Nelson Allen, a cousin of Pearl McRae whose story I just read, was also born in that same home of his grandmother (Sarah Jane Sanders Cheney). My grandfather was working in the mine at Claypool, Arizona and my grandmother Rozilpha went home to have my father at her mother's home in Thatcher on 30 August 1917. I wonder how many babies were born there.

Dad always went to bed at 10 pm because he got up early to carpool from Salt Lake City to Hill Air Force Base. He went to sleep listening to the radio so other noises in the house would not bother him
