Twin brothers left at the same time on their LDS missions so they could also return at the same time, limiting the time the best friends would be apart.

The Meldrum twins from West Jordan have been inseperable for 18 years and then were apart for two. The plan to leave and return together mostly worked, but one brother arrived at the Salt Lake International Airport about 24 hours before the other.
