THE CUTEST old man IN THE WHOLE WORLD!
I have to continue to tell you about Grandpa Stanford (Stan) Russon.
Isn't Stanford such a cool name?
He has a beautiful wife and eternal companion, Teresa, or Grandma Russon.
I don't know all the details of their lives but I know enough to tell you....
they are very faithful Latter-day Saints.
They have spent their lives building a legacy of faith.
They have dedicated their lives to perfecting themselves and helping others along the way.
They are dedicated to redeeming the dead through temple work and and spreading the Gospel through missionary service.
They are HARD workers.
They still live in their home. They still cook and clean and care for themselves.
They continue to host large family events.
Grandpa never stops moving and always has a large garden and a beautiful yard.
They have traveled A LOT!
They never stop learning. They are always reading!
Grandpa is a record keeper.
He has published a family history book of his Martineu ancestry.
He has also published his own personal history which is in two volumes. He has given a copy to all his children and grandchildren. They are treasures and include lots of pictures and wonderful details of significant personal and family events.
He is ALWAYS learning new ways to place his text around his pictures on the computer.
For his age he is very technologically savy.
Always memorizing how to replicate what his grandchildren teach him on the computer.
He just got a new computer!
They each served a mission as young adults.
Grandma served in Mexico and Grandpa served in the Central States, mostly in the south part.
As a couple they have served 4, yes FOUR missions:
In Switzerland, I think, they worked in the temple and Grandpa was/is a sealer.
He has married and sealed MANY of his grandchildren in the temple, on their wedding days.
Including me and Nathan.
It was the most beautiful sealing I have ever attended.
I hope everyone says that about their own sealing. ;-)
Ours was so personal because Grandpa sealed us.
He shared beautiful truths and personal insights that I continue to be touched by and reflect upon.
