I wanted to take the chance to honor my grandpa for a moment. He's the only grandpa I ever really knew growing up. My father's dad died when I was 5 or so. I will always remember my grandpa's love for BYU as well as the love and support he always showed me in my educational and career pursuits.
Yesterday I had the chance to go help dress him in his temple attire with my mom. I was glad I was there to support my mom as she had a chance to finally say "goodbye" to her dad. It was such a neat experience to see for myself how true the scriptures are when they state that our body is just a tabernacle of clay for our body. Without our spirit it is just an empty vessel. I was grateful to dress my grandpa in the clothes he loved wearing the most. I will never forget his desire to serve the Lord whether through church callings or through going to the temple. I know he is happy now to have strength to spread the gospel on the other side.
I will miss you Grandpa!
