Ellwin Rogers: Remembering

Remembering

Oct 4, 06:36 PM

I was trying to remember about Grandpa today! I think he would have enjoyed conference today. I thought about the technologies that he had seen in his lifetime. I thought about the love that he had for those around him. I thought about his quiet solid presence. About the stability he brought into my life. I took a few minutes and just quietly thought it would have been a good day to call and chat with him. I remember one day when he took Lori Ann and I out to a machine shed and in the corner behind some stuff showed us some baby kittens. I remember us walking to the barn with the milk jar for grandma. I remember Grandpa showing how to mix powdered milk for some baby calves and going out with bottles and feeding the baby calves. I remember him praying over family dinners or asking one of his kids to pray. I remember going to grandma and grandpas house and making bread in the wood stove oven. I remember Grandma getting a new table – many Christmas dinners and the naps grandpa took in his chair with his book. I remember he loved me.
