It brings me such joy to be close to family again and to be able to share in these wonderful relationships with Grandparents! What an important role they have played in my life, I love them so much.
Grama shared an experience about her conversion to the church with us while we were there that Dad hadn't ever heard before, I thought it would be fun to record it for family to read.
As my Mom and I asked Grama when she joined the church she told us it wasn't until after her and Grampa were married and they had a few children. I asked her to tell us about her conversion, she said, " A bishop (I can't remember his name) was visiting with her and asked her specifically 'Doris, when are you going to be baptized', she replied, 'Bishop I don't think I'm good enough to be a member of your church.' The good Bishop continued and said, ' Doris you were a member of this church before you came to earth and you need to be baptized!'" She was baptized a short while later.
I thought this was such a neat story. I love my Grandparents and we had such a wonderful visit! The kids couldn't get enough of all her little trinkets and of course the chocolate and candies she had for them. FAMILY IS EVERYTHING
