Title From Then to Now - A Story of Grandfathers
Description Grandpa continued to work hard along with his father and brothers He was by his father's side all the time the tunnel was being built He was a World War 1 veteran and worked with the CC Camps, receiving letters for many years after from thankful Evan Chris Larsen Myrtle Emma Jensen parents He was a rancher and a farmer--raising sheep, cattle and finally turkeys He married my beautiful nana. Myrtle Emma Jensen, on the 29th of May 1918. he writes. "On the 29th of May 1 decided to take the day off and marry Myrtle'" I'm sure there was more to it than that, but it shows how important work was then-everything else kind of had to be fit in around it Nana and Gramp moved around for awhile, but finally settled in Ephraim again They had one daughter and three sons My grandpa was such a special, wonderful man. and I know he became this way because of his father and grandfathers He. too, passed along so many wonderful qualities to my mom. his daughter Bernell Larsen 1 know after reading about these men why my mom never sits down to rest! Mom and 1 would also like to state that although we didn't go into much history on our grandmothers and mothers, we know that without a doubt they were the strength behind these men Without them none of these dreams could have been realized and fulfilled I also want to say how proud 1 am to be a small part of Ephraim and how proud I am of these great men They left such a wonderful heritage for our family They did so much and sacrificed so much, it makes me feel ashamed that I complain I also want my mom to know how proud I am of her and all she has accomplished, although she doesn't think so She, too. has left us with so many wonderful traditions and such a love of family I am truly grateful for the great example she has always been to me and all she has taught me with her kind words and great example, but most of her kindness and love for all of God's creations I hope that I can pass some of this on to my children. 80
