Nathan’s grandmother, Vada Frisby, passed away in November. The first time I met Grandma Frisby was when Nathan and I were dating. We lived in Pocatello, ID and decided to take a trip to Idaho Falls to visit Nathan’s Grandma. On the road, a blizzard came through, and as we crossed a bridge, a large SUV slid on the ice, and hit the side of the bridge. Nathan and I got out, helped the crying kids in the SUV, and called Grandma Frisby to tell her we would be late. She told us we shouldn’t be driving in the snow, and to turn around. But, we were already more than half way there, so we kept going. I am so glad we did, because it was one of the few times I got to see Grandma Frisby.
We took a trip back to Idaho Falls shortly after Natalie was born. Nathan had told his Grandma when he got home from his mission that she needed to stick around long enough to see his first child. Grandma Frisby did that, and stayed around even longer! Here are Nathan’s cherished pictures of Grandma Frisby meeting his first daughter, Natalie. I also love these pictures!
Our next trip to Idaho falls happened to be more than 2 years later, just two weeks ago. We traveled back for Grandma Frisby’s funeral services, and had a wonderful celebration of her life.

All of this snow fell during Grandma’s funeral services. It was beautiful!
As we were leaving the cemetery I had to stop and think to myself:
Thank you, Grandma Frisby, for your legacy.
You raised great children, including my wonderful mother-in-law.
Your children have raised great children of their own; one of whom is my husband and Eternal Companion – a wonderful man.
Your Legacy lives on . . . and we Love You
