John with Grandma and Grandpa M.

We spent the week in Wyoming with Nathan's family for his grandfather's funeral. Nathan's grandfather was the most healthy and fit grandpa I had ever seen - he walked daily for as long as I knew him, until just last year. He had a full head of lovely white hair. He loved banana splits. Remember the Ice Cream Company in CA? He enjoyed eating there whenever they were visiting Nathan's parents - I really think he would have loved the Lalapalooza.

It was great to see Nathan's family in action. This side of the family does not host family reunions, so though I knew his Aunts and Uncles, I did not know many of the cousins. There were so many grandchildren and great-grandchildren that we filled the Chapel for the service, then filled the Cultural Hall for the dinner. The Relief Society was incredible, providing delicious dinners in both Green River and in North Platt.

What nice memories of Nate's grandpa. It is neat your kids have been able to know their great grandparents a bit.
