Herman Requena KJDT-Q7W
How do we get the form to do this work for these two? I need to get Temple work done.
Thank you for posting your question here in Community.
In addition to the names and Family Tree ID numbers that you have provided, we require written permission from a close living relative of the person for whom you want to perform proxy ordinances. A close living relative can be a parent, an un-divorced spouse, sibling or child of the person you are requesting. Please reply with the name of the person who gave that written permission and that person's relationship to the person whose work you are requesting.
Once we have that information we can send your request to a team of specialists who will evaluate your request and respond by email.
We look forward to hearing back from you with this information.
The Temple work will be done (at least for Herman (aka Chuck) Requena) by our Stake Patriarch Ed Guthrie. We used to minister to Chuck and Dawn. They both died. Their daughter, Serenity Requena, is the one who has given permission. No, I didn't not get written permission. If I need to do that, we can go see her again and have her sign a written letter if needed. We did; however, have a wonderful visit with her and she (Serenity - the daughter) did give her permission. We were working with Dawn before she passed to get her work done, but she died before she could go to the Temple herself.
Just let me know how we can do this properly and I'll work with Bro Guthrie (our Stake Patriarch) to have him do the work.
Here is a link to a Knowledge Article, giving information needed for requesting proxy ordinances for a friend.
Among other information, this article gives these instructions:
"Make sure that you have signed, written permission from one of your friend's close living relatives. We cannot accept signed, written permission from yourself or your deceased friend, it must be from the closest living relative. Word the written permission this way:
I, (name of person giving permission), give (your name) permission to do temple work in a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temple, for (name of deceased), who is my (relationship to person giving permission). (Signature of person giving permission)"
We hope this helps.
