A few words...

One of the most wonderful things about marrying into this family is that I had a chance to know Grandpa Gilbert. From the first time I met him, and Grandma too, they both welcomed me into their lives unconditionally. I always looked forward to our trips to Utah just to see them. There was always an overwhelming feeling of love and peace in their home. Even though I only knew him for 5 years, I feel extremely lucky for that time. I know Kennedy feels the same way. She asked if she could take a stuffed animal to give to him to remember her by. I just wish that Rowan would've gotten a chance to know him. We love you Grandpa and will miss you.

Handsome looking guy for sure! Since I look like little grandma hopefully that means my little boys will some day look like him:)

He leaves behind a great legacy. Hopefully we will live so we can live with him again.
