Grandpa Kruger's Testimony of Temple Work

Contributor: katyasmith Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

When I was nearly 11 years old, my family lived with Grandpa and Grandma Kruger for about 6 months. During that time, my grandparents were ordinances workers in the Salt Lake Temple on Thursday and Friday evenings. They really enjoyed working there. One time, I was in the backyard playing when Grandpa came by. I asked him, "How was the temple?" Grandpa told me he had been assigned to work in the baptistry. While he was there one of the young women that came to do baptisms for the dead told him that she felt, through the Holy Ghost, that the person for whom she had been baptized had accepted the gospel. Grandpa finished the story by looking at me and saying, "That young woman could have come to the temple yesterday wondering if the church was true!" To Grandpa, it was a fact the church was true and he wanted to help build up the children and youth so they knew it. I am thankful for his matter-of-fact testimony of the church and temple work. -- Nathaniel Hollingsworth

Grandpa's Last Testimony

Contributor: katyasmith Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

The day before Grandpa Alma Edmund Kruger passed away, my dad (Thomas Hollingsworth), Uncle Randy Kruger, and one of Randy's sons (probably Paul), gave Grandpa a priesthood blessing. I do not remember what was said, exactly, but I remember it was clear that he was going to pass away soon. I think he was blessed to be able to express the desires of his heart, too, but I don't remember (that was in October 2004, so, 10.5 years ago and the blessing did not make it into my journal). Grandpa was sleeping a lot and did not stir. He was breathing heavily and we did not expect him to respond. After visiting with Grandma for a time, Dad and I prepared to leave. I went into Grandpa's little bedroom and tearfully bade him goodbye. I encouraged him to be a good missionary in the Spirit World. After saying that, he awoke. He looked into my eyes and he said, “You’ve been a good family. You’ve brought me great joy and happiness, and I love you.” Grandpa paused for a minute, then said, “Always remember that I love you. I love you. Thank-you. You’ve been a good family.” (Quote recorded in my personal journal). He expressed the same sentiment to Uncle Randy. It was a tender mercy from Heavenly Father that Grandpa could express his love for me and his other family members at that time. I think he would have expressed the same love to all of his posterity, had they been there. I am thankful for a Grandfather who lived the gospel and set an effective example of loving, serving, and enjoying his family. -- Nathaniel Thomas Hollingsworth, March 31, 2015

Bowling with Grandpa Alma Kruger

Contributor: katyasmith Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

When I (Shannon Hollingsworth Andersen) was in high school (around 2000), my brother Michael and I went to Grandpa (Alma) and Grandma (Hilda) Kruger's house one day. We decided to go bowling, but Grandma didn't want to come with us. The three of us went to a bowling alley near their home in Salt Lake City, Utah. Throughout Grandpa's life he had been a terrific bowler. At one point he even worked at a bowling alley. My mom used to tell us that he could bowl perfect games. When we took Grandpa bowling, he had just recovered from having his eye removed because he had cancer of the eye. We were not expecting him to bowl that well. We were expecting to have fun. During the whole time we were there, Michael and I did our best, but it still was not very good. I don't even know if either of us broke 100 points. Grandpa, on the other hand, would pick up his ball. It was a heavy ball, too, because Grandpa was still quite strong. Then he would kind of shuffle up to the lane and it looked to us like he kind of dropped the ball each time. However, he still was getting strikes and spares! We couldn't believe that he could do so well with only one eye! His score was definitely not 300, but he did much better than Michael and I did. The best part about it was that the whole time Grandpa was laughing with us and having a good time. He wasn't laughing AT us, but with us. He had a way of helping me to see the humor in things - and in myself - that never hurt my feelings. He loved having fun doing what ever he was doing.

Life timeline of Alma Edmund Kruger

1920
Alma Edmund Kruger was born on 29 Mar 1920
Alma Edmund Kruger was 19 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

Alma Edmund Kruger was 33 years old when Jonas Salk announced the successful test of his polio vaccine on a small group of adults and children (vaccination pictured). Jonas Edward Salk was an American medical researcher and virologist. He discovered and developed one of the first successful polio vaccines. Born in New York City, he attended New York University School of Medicine, later choosing to do medical research instead of becoming a practicing physician. In 1939, after earning his medical degree, Salk began an internship as a physician scientist at Mount Sinai Hospital. Two years later he was granted a fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he would study flu viruses with his mentor Thomas Francis, Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 until his death in 1968. Born in Atlanta, King is best known for advancing civil rights through nonviolence and civil disobedience, tactics his Christian beliefs and the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi helped inspire.

It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. The war is considered a Cold War-era proxy war by some US perspectives. The majority of Americans believe the war was unjustified. The war would last roughly 19 years and would also form the Laotian Civil War as well as the Cambodian Civil War, which also saw all three countries become communist states in 1975.
Alma Edmund Kruger was 66 years old when Space Shuttle program: STS-51-L mission: Space Shuttle Challenger disintegrates after liftoff, killing all seven astronauts on board. The Space Shuttle program was the fourth human spaceflight program carried out by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), which accomplished routine transportation for Earth-to-orbit crew and cargo from 1981 to 2011.
