Hunting at Grandpas

Contributor: THansen3 Created: 3 years ago Updated: 3 years ago

I've always loved and idolized my Grandpa Marett. I always felt love from him in return. One of the things that I loved as a young boy was traveling to my grandparents home in Duchesne, Utah. As a boy there was no better place in the world for adventure. When I was around 7- 8 yrs. old, my older brother Troy got a BB gun - I think for Christmas. When we knew we were traveling out to grandpa's house that spring, Troy and I planned our first hunting trip together. We knew that one of Grandpa's treasures on his farm and surrounding hills were the little cottontail rabbits. He loved watching them as he went about his work. When our family arrived to Grandpa's house, Troy and I approached grandpa to get his permission to go hunting for cottontail rabbits. He was humored by our request and decided to give us his blessing. That was all that we needed. Off to the hillside we went. After finding a couple of rabbits and not getting a good shot, we finally got the shot we were looking for. We saw the cottontail just on the opposite side of the gully we had just hiked over. Troy carefully place his weight on his front foot, aimed for what seemed like a minute and squeezed the trigger. The pellet must have hit the rabbit in just the right place because it fell dead and gently rolled down the hill. We were so proud. We picked up the little rabbit by it's hind legs and excitedly ran back to the farmhouse to see the pride on the faces of our parents and grandparents. I could tell Grandpa never thought we had much of a chance to actually hit a rabbit, and certainly wouldn't have given us permission to hunt as he preferred his cottontails live. He never gave us permission again to hunt rabbits in his hills, but he did show us how to clean and dress the rabbit and grandma cooked it for dinner. Grandpa never wanted us to hunt his cottontails, but you could tell he was proud of his two little grandsons for actually having a successful hunt.

The grandmother I never knew

When I was in my forties, my husband Max and I attend our Stake reorganization meeting in the tabernacle on temple square. My parents, George and Edythe Marett had come from the Uintah Basin to visit for the weekend and were attending with us. As we were leaving the Salt Lake tabernacle on temple square, a lady behind us tapped my dad (George Marett) on the shoulder and introduced herself as the daughter of a lady who was good friends with my dad's birth mother, Mary Lavina Mitchell. Grandma Marett had passed away (along with her infant daughter) shortly after giving birth to their eighth child. This left my Grandpa Marett a widower with five children under the age of eight--my dad, George, being the oldest of the young family (two other babies had died at birth). This lady told my dad that she had heard her mother and his mother talking one day and her mother made a statement something to the fact that she hoped she would never die young as she would never want anyone to raise her children but herself. Mary (my father's mother) replied that she hoped that if she were to die young and leave her children behind, that her husband would find a wonderful woman who would rear her children similar to how she would. Interestingly enough, the friend of Mary's lived long and was able to rear her children to adulthood and Mary passed away not long after this conversation, leaving behind the five children under eight. The wonderful part of the story is that Grandpa Marett did marry a wonderful woman by the name of Ina Gardner, who had two children of her own and then she and Grandpa Marett had two more children together. She was a very gentle and soft spoken woman and all of the children loved and respected her and have reported that they did not feel she showed favoritism to her birth children over the five who were left behind by my Grandma Mary. Ina Gardner is the only grandma any of us ever knew and we all loved and respected her. This experience brought tears to my father's eyes (something that rarely happened), and we were so grateful to hear this experience over 70 years after it taking place. There are no coincidences! The Lord is in our lives and shows His love in small and great ways.
