|Farewell for now Elder Allred|
|Branch President Billy from Uman|
came to tell him he loved him and to
|Member Oriko Ewar said she could not let him go without thanking him and letting him know how much she loved and appreciated him.|
Oriko has one of the nicest dogs around and he has always been a very loyal dog. So for her to offer the dog for a meal to honor Elder Allred is a sign of how much she loves him. Elder Allred told her not to kill it, that he would just take his picture with the dog. She of course said no, they were going to kill it and eat it with him.
We don't want anyone to get upset, sad or mad about this post because this is very common in many places in the world, not just Micronesia. Well Elder Allred has had a lot of goodbye parties and truly he wouldn't have had time for another one. Oriko insisted they were going to kill the dog, she expressed how much she loved Elder Allred. She kept saying "I really love this Elder" so she called over her neighbor, Thompson to kill the dog. Another side note here: Oriko is a wonderful lady, one of the best women in the world we have blogged about before. Okay, back to the story - - -The funny thing is when the neighbor tried to tie the dog down to kill it, this smart dog knew what he was going to do and jumped up and bit him, then ran away. He did come back after a little while and then someone else tried to catch him and tie him up. Again the dog jumped, bit him on the shoulder and ran away.
She finally gave up and said I guess I need to keep the dog, it just isn't supposed to happen. We were all relieved but she was sad not to share the dog with Elder Allred. He did however get his picture with the dog. When we get a copy of it we will post it later to prove to you that he is still alive, well and barking and Protecting Oriko and the family.
