Memories Surrounding Grandpa Meyer

Contributor: jjmays Created: 3 years ago Updated: 3 years ago

I was a small girl when Grandpa Meyer passed away. I vaguely remember going to California with him to see a special doctor. My parents took him and Grandma. I remember the steepness of the streets of San Francisco. I remember riding on the Trolley. I remember pulling up to the front of a multistory, brick-faced building that was the doctors office. But more so, I remember being at Grandpa's house to visit once. He was very sick, I remember that it was odd that he and Grandma slept in twin beds, because my parents slept together in a big bed. I remember his wooden leg laying next to the foot of his bed. It had leather straps to hold it on. I remember Grandpa coming to the dinner table to eat his breakfast with his crutches and no leg attached. I remember how hard he shook from his Parkinson's Disease. When he passed away, I was just over 5 years old. My mother left suddenly to go home, Dad brought us in the car. I remember that we had to stop over at a Motel and Dad had forgotten to bring our pajamas. We were so excited because we were going to get to sleep like Dad, in our underwear. When we attended the funeral at his home ward in Bridgeland, Utah, I remember the church being all white on the outside. It seemed airy and beautiful inside. I remember the line of women who were all my aunts wearing their black dresses, black hats, and red lip-stick holding their handkerchiefs dabbing at their faces in their grief during the service. We were being attended to by my Dad's brother, Uncle Deloy. As we started to get restless, I remember Deloy giving us each a piece of Spearmint gum to keep us quiet. I later learned how hard this time was for my mother. Shortly after returning home, I was headed into my mother's room when I stopped at the door and saw my mother kneeling beside her bed. She was sobbing her heart out in prayer. I remember feeling that this was a hallowed time for her and quietly left her to her grief without interruption. My mother spoke highly of her father. She told of being 9 or 10 years old and her dad had a farming accident where he lost his leg in a hay chopping accident. He was rushed to the hospital because his leg was chopped off. She was too young to understand that her dad wasn't going to die and believed that he was. She tells of receiving the sweet answer of peace in her pleas to Heavenly Father that he was going to be okay. She tells how he loved to dance, and losing his leg was not going to keep him off the dance floor. She also tells about his love for ice skating on the lake during the winter. He again did not quit ice skating just because he was missing a leg. Grandma Meyer told me about how much she loved her husband. She told of a day when Grandpa kept coming by the front door and knocking. She would have to stop what she was doing to answer the door and it would always be Grandpa. She was reading a book, "A Story A Day" and when the knock came she was fed up, she answered the door and brought the book down on the person's head. To her startling amazement the person at the door was a complete stranger. In her embarrassment she stated, "Pat's in the barn," and closed the door.

Life timeline of Frank Frederick Meyer

1904
Frank Frederick Meyer was born on 7 Sep 1904
Frank Frederick Meyer was 13 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Frank Frederick Meyer was 24 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Frank Frederick Meyer was 35 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.
Frank Frederick Meyer was 37 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.
Frank Frederick Meyer was 53 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Frank Frederick Meyer died on 12 Jan 1965 at the age of 60
