Memories Of My Grandpa Archibald

Contributor: raishk Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

The night before my grandpa died my brother, mom and I went and visited him. I sat on his lap and he tickled me for the last time. He died less then a mile away from my house. He was going home from helping my mom with our sick horse.

Grandpa Archibald

Contributor: raishk Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

Most of the memories I still have of my grandpa are of his kindness and diligence. The most memorable of these is a collection of memories. Each time we would go to grandpas house we would knock, hear his voice beckon us to enter. As we entered he would look toward us and shout each of our names over the background noise of the T.V. which most of the time was a baseball game. Then he would hug each of us before moving on to our parents. Each time we would come to visit I remember the starchy blue jumpsuit that he would wear. I am not sure if he had just gotten home before we got there or didn't want to miss greeting us, but he always seemed to have it on. This leads into another great attribute of my grandfather. He worked all of his life, to the bone, never stopping, always going. His diligence and willing to work hard even in his older age was always encouraging to me. This brings two more memories to my mind. The first, when he bought some land up in the summit of Malad, Idaho just north-east of Devils Creek Reservoir and not to far from I-15. He loved that place and spent many hours taking care of that land. Planting trees, building a small dam at the creek. He built a pavilion, a fire place, and eventually supervised the building of a cabin there. My memory of him takes place here on that land that he so loved. It was Easter morning and he went out and hid dozens of plastic eggs filled with all sorts of candy for us kids, but for each one of us there was one Golden Egg that held a special gift. I was one of the last kids to not find one and began to lose hope that there was one for me, but just like a angel I heard my grandpas voice, whispering encouragement to me and leading me toward one of the Golden surprises that he had hid himself. The second memory is when my father decided to put a wood floor into our house. We had grown tired of the linoleum floor that we had. So my father took the task upon himself to do it, because it would cost less to do it ourselves. I remember my grandfathers self-less attitude as one day he came down to visit our family for a vacation and ended up spending most of the time helping my dad align the wood and get it nailed to the new floor. That was one of the last times i saw my Grandfather, but his image and what he stood for will forever be with me. The final memory that comes to me of my grandfather was that of his cooking, each Sunday that we were at my grandparents house they would throw a feast. Roast, mashed potato, delicious rolls with homemade strawberry jam, and creamed peas. My grandmother would make everything but the cream peas. That was my grandfathers job, and he excelled! We never knew how he made them taste like he did, and he never wrote it down or told any of us. For all of us they were the dang best creamed peas we will ever have.

Grandma Archibald

Contributor: raishk Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

I have a lot more memories of my grandmother than my grandfather. Not all of them are good memories, but i am glad that I have them. The oldest memories I have are similar to my grandfathers, her cooking, her greeting us as we enter the house, kindness and love. The ones that are different are after my grandfather died. The first that i can recall was how good at singing my grandmother was. Every Sunday she would direct the music. The ward sang well, but her voice always rang out beautifully above everyone else. I'm sure even now she is part of the angelic choirs above. After 30-40 years of marriage to my grandfather, my grandmother was left alone. Even after his death you could tell she missed him. His lazy boy chair stayed in its place next to hers and was untouched except for visitors. Pictures hung of him and she was saddened but filled with love when she talked about him. Whenever my grandmother could help out she would be there. One summer to help my little brother we went to a camp for deaf kids. We all learned how to work with kids of lesser hearing and we met people from around the world. It took place over the course of 3-4 weeks. The first week my father was there, but he needed to go back to work. My mother felt uncomfortable being in the big city of Los Angels by herself, so my grandmother accompanied us. She took care of us and navigated for my mother. She made lunches and went to the tedious classes to learn about my brothers hardship. Back then I did not see how much my grandmother sacrificed to come with us. Now I see her as a hero and example of self-lessness. We would always forever know that she loved us because of the simple things that she did for us. One specific instance that comes to my mind, when I was about 8-10 I had a championship soccer game in our rec league. I wanted all the people to be there that I knew. I asked my parents if I could call grandma and ask her to come. My parents loving me let me call her but told me not to be disappointing if she couldn't attend. As I talked to her she asked how school was and how I was personally. I eventually asked if she would come to my game. With all my hopes she told me she would try her best. I knew what that meant, mostly likely she would not be able to come. To my surprise and to everyone else she did come. She drove the three hours from Malad got there right on time, watched the game and went to dinner with us afterword, and drove back home. I knew then that she truly loved me. The last memories of my grandmother are filled with sadness and pain, but also of faith and love. As she grew older she attended a cruise one week to relax and have a vacation. Halfway through the cruise she began to have pain in her stomach and was eventually flown off the ship home. She was checked out by the doctors and we learned that she had cancer. It was pancreatic cancer, which we also learned was deadly and there was not much hope. She tried radiation, which made her feel worse and didn't help the cancer, so she made a decision to prepare to move on to the next life. Over the next few months the pain increased and she grew less mobile. One day we received a call from our aunt telling us that they thought she would move on later that night. We packed quickly and headed to Malad. As we sat around her bed she said her good byes and bore us her testimony. She told us she loved us and was happy to return to god, where her beloved husband was waiting for her. She was very ready to see the love of her life again and be reunited with loved ones. She fell asleep and we waited for the end to come. To our surprise it didn't, she awoke again and began crying just asking for heavenly father to let her leave. Within the next few months she passed into the next life, but I will always remember her prayers and her smile at the last Christmas we spent with her. She looked ill and tired, but she still cheered and laughed as we opened our presents. She embraced us with love and affection even as she passed. She never gave up her faith in God, and Jesus even when her prayers to return were not yet answered. She truly was a inspiration to all of us.
