Vai's View: Reunion with Kleins triggers others' accounts

Seems I wasn't the only one interested in a reunion with Marty and Mary Ellen Klein.

Marty, if you remember, was my boyhood home teaching companion whom I wrote about reuniting with after 35 years in last week's column.

Three interesting emails found their way to me this week, one of them this morning. Steve Ostler lives in Highland, Utah, and reached me through the editors of Mormon Times. He served in Patchogue, Long Island, N.Y., in the mid-60s and knew the Kleins. He asked to be re-introduced. Hal Stock was also a young missionary serving in Patchogue in January 1967. His companion, an Elder Clarke, had baptized the Kleins before Elder Stock arrived, but he became very close to the Kleins. Hal Stock is now in the Missionary Training Center with his wife serving a full-time mission as senior missionary coordinators. He last saw the Kleins in the early '70s when Marty was attending BYU, and lost contact with them when the Kleins moved to Mesa, Ariz., after graduating from BYU.
