My last year with Grandpa

Contributor: SouthPawPhilly Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

I spent my first semester of college at BYU-Hawaii. While I had planned to be there for the whole year, I felt like I needed to go to BYU starting that Winter semester. I felt strongly about it and everything fell into place so well. I think there were a few reasons that I was supposed to be at BYU that semester--winter of 1988. First, I met my future husband that semester right before he headed off on a mission. But in addition to that, My oldest brother, Rex was there at BYU and we spent some great times together and really a lot of time together. The greatest of those memories were all the times we spent up at Grandma and Grandpa's house in Salt Lake City. 9th S. 4th E. near Liberty park. We drove up to their house most Sundays. Grandpa would make a great home cooked meal. Rex helped with anything that was needed and we got to know our Grandparents better than ever. One time I was talking to Grandpa about his girlfriend. I asked him if he had one or something like that. He pointed toward the kitchen and said he had the best girlfriend in the whole world, "she's running around here somewhere." He claimed. It was so cute. I saw Grandpa begin to decline very fast from June to September when Grandpa slipped out of mortality. I was so grateful I had that Winter and Summer with him. The things I remember most from those trips up to Grandma and Grandpa Harward's were the fact that almost each time we ever made that drive, Rex stopped at the side of the road to help someone stranded with car trouble--this was before cell phones were common. I remember Grandpa's home-made pies and the best chicken and dumplings ever. Mostly I remember the love and comfortable, feeling I had spending time getting to know my grandparents so much better and so soon before their passing. Grandma passed in 1992 and I was at BYU all those years from 1988 January until Grandma passed and then some. What a blessing.

Life timeline of Wendell R. Harward

1903
Wendell R. Harward was born on 21 Apr 1903
Wendell R. Harward was 14 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.
Wendell R. Harward was 17 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
Wendell R. Harward was 36 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.
Wendell R. Harward was 42 years old when World War II: Combat ends in the Pacific Theater: The Japanese Instrument of Surrender is signed by Japanese Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu and accepted aboard the battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. The Pacific War, sometimes called the Asia-Pacific War, was the theater of World War II that was fought in the Pacific and Asia. It was fought over a vast area that included the Pacific Ocean and islands, the South West Pacific, South-East Asia, and in China.
Wendell R. Harward was 54 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.
Wendell R. Harward was 62 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.
Wendell R. Harward was 70 years old when Vietnam War: The last United States combat soldiers leave South Vietnam. The Vietnam War, also known as the Second Indochina War, and in Vietnam as the Resistance War Against America or simply the American War, was a conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. 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.
Wendell R. Harward died on 17 Sep 1988 at the age of 85
