(Grandma and Grandpa walking into the DC temple the day of our wedding. We were so grateful they could celebrate with us)
I know I am going to find out so much more about his life, as I entered it later on. But I always knew he and his wife loved the gospel because they had served 2 missions overseas to share it. They always attended the temple, attended their meetings,held callings, and served.

I know travel probably was not easy at an older age. But I really feel like Grandpa and Grandma have made an effort to be at all the BIG events of our family.
That is the reason we will mourn-is our loss of his physical presence in our life. If we did not know there was a better place it could be devastating. But we DO, so we will just be selfish and be a little sad that we cannot see him with our eyes for a time. We miss you already Grandpa!
Grandpa has lived a wonderful life and has seen all his children grown, serve missions, attend school, and get married, as well as most of his grandchildren. He has seen many great grandchildren born. He has a beautiful posterity. He has left a Legacy that we will always treasure. We LOVE YOU!
