Grandma Frisby’s Funeral

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

It’s that time . . .

Happy Birthday Nathan!

image * I told Nathan to smile a while back, and this is what I got.  One of the many reasons I love him . . . he makes me laugh!

Today is Nathan’s 29th Birthday.

Right now he is out with the missionaries.

Today he will be working on a website to help us make money.

Then he’ll spend a lot of time with us, and some friends.

Tomorrow he will be waking up early to let me sleep in.

Monday he will be back in the clinic, working like a good student.

Multiple times this week, he will turn to me, make me laugh, and run away.

In about 1/2 hour, he will make my children laugh.

Before each day is over, he will remind me (once again) why I’m special.

And Forever and Always, He will be MY husband.

He will be the one I get to love!

And I will try my best to make him laugh, and smile, and feel special.

Cause that’s what life’s all about!

Happy Birthday Nathan.

You’re the best Hubby and Daddy we could ever ask for!
