Who would have thought that a trip to the dentist would have begun an eternity of love!
Just moments after arriving home from a two year mission Jon Bratt stopped in at the dentist to surprise his sisters (dental hygienists) of his homecoming. It was there that he met his first and only love Debie Ryan. Sparks flew as he shook the hand of the young beautiful brunette. It was hard for Jon to believe he had found his first love so soon! But two years later...they were sealed for time and all eternity at the Provo LDS Temple exactly 30 years ago today!
