Great Grandma Whiting's Gift of Love and Sacrifice

Contributor: shakyshakyme Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Written by Mitch Whiting, Great Grandson of Dale Atwood Whiting. The greatest gift I have ever been given was a small handwritten letter wrapped around a worn $1 bill from my Great Grandma Whiting each year on my birthday. As a kid, I had the most difficult time reading her cursive handwriting because her precious, aged hands would shake as she wrote. I realize now that the reason why this simple gift meant so much to me is because of the sacrifice she made each year to send me that letter and dollar bill. Each shaky bump in her handwriting was an expression of her love for me. Each dollar bill, also a small amount of money, was a sacrifice. Even though these sacrifices were small, they were consistent. I knew every year that I would receive that letter and each year my heart was filled with her love. She would send a personal letter and dollar to each of her great grandchildren on their birthdays. Through this example my Great Grandma Whiting taught me about the love that my Savior has for me. Jesus Christ’s love is a love full of sacrifice. He sacrificed himself for me in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the Cross of Calvary. He, like my sweet Grandmother, is consistent in his sacrifice. He is reaching out to me constantly, hoping that I will use his greatest gift, the gift of his Atonement. My Great Grandma Whiting was the sweetest woman on the earth. She passed away on December 13, 2009 at age 89 when I was 17 years old. I miss her love filled letters but I look forward to the day where I can hug her again on the other side of the veil and be in her presence.

I have fond memories of visiting Grandma when I was young. When I arrived at her house in Idaho, I always loved to go in her room first thing to see the first letter I wrote to her hanging on the wall. That is where she hung the first letter of each of her grandchildren. I felt special that she would take time to write letters to me. After she passed away, she had a collection of every card ever sent to her. Later in life with my own children, our favorite memories with Grandma were listening to her read from her journal. Her stories about dating Grandpa are entertaining and fun! Grandma would often tell about how she sang 'I am a Child of God' with the children on her mission to the Indian reservation. She would then gather the grandchildren on the floor around her to sing the song together. With a drive to bear testimony of the Gospel, we had opportunities to hear it. I appreciate her example to testify and serve. Her legacy of testimony, endurance and missionary work are a strength to our family and will be remembered. Family members wore something pink to her funeral because she loved pink! Her roses were pink and most of her house was pink! My kids lovingly called her Grandma Pink. The nick-name started because my daughter Nicole always wanted to know which grandma we were visiting. We would tell her, The grandma who likes pink!', and she knew which grandma. One day Nicole wrote a letter to Grandma, addressing her as 'Grandma Pink'. Grandma signed her reply; 'Love, Grandma Pink'. The name stuck ever since.

Shaking the Hand of a Prophet!

Contributor: shakyshakyme Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Written by Dale Atwood Whiting on September 25, 1998 (Friday) What a beautiful, special day this is! I shook hands with the Prophet of the Lord, President Gordon B. Hinckley. I am serving my fifth mission. This one at the Church Office Building in the Church Educational System. I have loved each of my missions. Each one has been unique and different. Each have had their highlights. When I arrived at the Church Office Building this morning, Brother Tim Gurr told me the First Presidency were going to be having their picture taken out on the lawn between the Church Administration Building and the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. I decided to go out and see if I could get a glimpse of the Prophet. There were security guards all over the place. They let me go down the walk between the two buildings and I walked very slow enjoying every beautiful flower along the way. I walked slow because I was hoping the First Presidency would come out. When I got to the end of the walk, they wouldn’t let me go back up so I hurried in and through the Joseph Smith Memorial Building and out the north entrance. I then went back to the area where I started my walk between the two buildings and stopped and watched the First Presidency. They had just finished having their pictures taken and were walking back towards near where I was at-a security guard walked in front of them and another guard followed them. As they walked, something inside let me know that I was going to shake hands with President Hinckley. When they got across from me they kept going, except for President Hinckley. He broke formation from Presidents Monson and Faust and walked over to me. By this time my eyes were filled with tears. When he got over to me he held out his hand. As I took his hand he glanced at my missionary nametag and said, “Sister Whiting, how wonderful to see you. I’m so happy to shake your hand.” I said something about how wonderful to shake “my” prophets hand. Then he walked away and once again joined his counselors. This was truly one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. I feel President Hinckley really is “my” prophet. I know he is a true Prophet and I am so grateful to the Lord for giving us the guidance of a Prophet and I am so grateful to the Lord for giving us the guidance of a Prophet on the earth today. Some may feel shaking hands with a government dignitary, king, queen, or the richest man in the world, etc. is grand, but give me the hand of a Prophet of the Lord! Six Missions Served after her husband Lutie passed away: #1: Holbrook, Arizona Mission, working with the Navajo Indians on the Navajo Indian Reservation. #2: Phoenix, Arizona Mission, worked with the Apache Indians on the Apache Reservation in White River area of North East Arizona. #3: Sydney, Australia Temple Mission. #4: San Jose, California Mission. #5: Church Office as receptionist for the Church Education System. #6: Church Office Building. She was asked to extend her mission several times.

Life timeline of Dale A Whiting

Dale A Whiting was born on 29 May 1920
Dale A Whiting 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.
Dale A Whiting was 21 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany invades the Soviet Union in Operation Barbarossa. Nazi Germany is the common English name for Germany between 1933 and 1945, when Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party (NSDAP) controlled the country through a dictatorship. Under Hitler's rule, Germany was transformed into a totalitarian state that controlled nearly all aspects of life via the Gleichschaltung legal process. The official name of the state was Deutsches Reich until 1943 and Großdeutsches Reich from 1943 to 1945. Nazi Germany is also known as the Third Reich, from German Drittes Reich, meaning "Third Realm" or "Third Empire", the first two being the Holy Roman Empire and the German Empire. The Nazi regime ended after the Allied Powers defeated Germany in May 1945, ending World War II in Europe.
Dale A Whiting was 35 years old when Disneyland Hotel opens to the public in Anaheim, California. The Disneyland Hotel is a resort hotel located at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, owned by the Walt Disney Company and operated through its Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products division. Opened on October 5, 1955, as a motor inn owned and operated by Jack Wrather under an agreement with Walt Disney, the hotel was the first to officially bear the Disney name. Under Wrather's ownership, the hotel underwent several expansions and renovations over the years before being acquired by Disney in 1988. The hotel was downsized to its present capacity in 1999 as part of the Disneyland Resort expansion.
Dale A Whiting was 44 years old when Martin Luther King Jr. received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. 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.
Dale A Whiting was 59 years old when Jim Jones led more than 900 members of the Peoples Temple to mass murder/suicide in Jonestown, Guyana, hours after some of its members assassinated U.S. Congressman Leo Ryan (pictured). James Warren Jones was an American religious cult leader who initiated and was responsible for a mass suicide and mass murder in Jonestown, Guyana. He considered Jesus Christ as being in compliance with an overarching belief in socialism as the correct social order. Jones was ordained as a Disciples of Christ pastor, and he achieved notoriety as the founder and leader of the Peoples Temple cult.
Dale A Whiting was 69 years old when Cold War: Fall of the Berlin Wall: East Germany opens checkpoints in the Berlin Wall, allowing its citizens to travel to West Berlin. The Berlin Wall was a guarded concrete barrier that physically and ideologically divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989. Constructed by the German Democratic Republic, starting on 13 August 1961, the Wall cut off West Berlin from virtually all of surrounding East Germany and East Berlin until government officials opened it in November 1989. Its demolition officially began on 13 June 1990 and finished in 1992. The barrier included guard towers placed along large concrete walls, accompanied by a wide area that contained anti-vehicle trenches, "fakir beds" and other defenses. The Eastern Bloc portrayed the Wall as protecting its population from fascist elements conspiring to prevent the "will of the people" in building a socialist state in East Germany.
Dale A Whiting was 74 years old when The Rwandan genocide begins when the aircraft carrying Rwandan president Juvénal Habyarimana and Burundian president Cyprien Ntaryamira is shot down. The Rwandan genocide, also known as the genocide against the Tutsi, was a genocidal mass slaughter of Tutsi in Rwanda by members of the Hutu majority government. An estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans were killed during the 100-day period from 7 April to mid-July 1994, constituting as many as 70% of the Tutsi population. Additionally, 30% of the Pygmy Batwa were killed. The genocide and widespread slaughter of Rwandans ended when the Tutsi-backed and heavily armed Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) led by Paul Kagame took control of the country. An estimated 2,000,000 Rwandans, mostly Hutus, were displaced and became refugees.
