    I’m happy Grandma is back with Grandpa. I’m happy in a solemn way. I have may happy memories of grandma and grandpa, especially visiting them in Spencer every summer. I can’t express how much I appreciate the gospel of Jesus Christ and His charity and grace. Grandma and Grandpa raised my mother in Christ’s church and my mother was a major key in the development of my testimony of Christ. I owe them so much for the gift of my life and helping me become who I am today.
