My Sweet Grandpa

Saturday I said goodbye to my dear sweet Grandpa.  He was always so kind and loving. He was always joking and had a big smile no matter what was ailing him.  When I was 16 he made me a hope chest. (He was a master craftsman)  I have it in my living room now, it is one of my most cherished things I own. I'll never forget how he came and watched me play my flute with the Dixie College symphonic band at Abravenal Hall. Especially knowing next door was the Jazz game going on! A few years ago I gave him a book to write down answers to questions about his life. He actually did it!! My cousin got the book and made copies for all the grandkids. It was so wonderful to get to learn more and more about my Grandpa. He had a very strong testimony of the church and he loved the Gospel. I am so thankful for all the wonderful memories I have of him. He was a great example to me!! I love you Grampy!!!!
