My paternal grandma & grandpa were married in the Manti temple 55 years ago and have since accomplished quite a bit! They had six biological children, two + adopted children, at least thirty grandchildren (biological/adopted) and a gizilion great grandchildren. It is overwhelming to think of the influence these two people have on so many. I am everso grateful for their examples of righteousness, life-long learning (their brains and talents are always engaged/growing), and their great big hearts. My grandma would adopt the whole world if she could. They are currently serving their third full-time mission in Salt Lake (Wisconsin & Ireland were the previous missions in addition to lots of temple and local missionary service). I have a lot to live up to!
