As the season’s change and we say goodbye to orange hue trees desperately trying to keep ahold of their brightly multicolored leaves from the wind that whistles down the street. We celebrate the new arrival of the first snow of the year. We had aÂ plethoraÂ of leaves in our yard this fall it was bittersweet to rake and shovel them to the curb! So much leaves even the neighbors down the street and casual street walkers would come down to our home and pick the red and orange leaves. The other houses on the street only had yellow leaves.As we get closer to gathering w/family and friends, remember to “pass the gravy” and think of the moments you’ve had this year that inspired you to be a better person and share those thoughts w/others.
On Tuesday August 21, 2007 at 11:00 am at the South Ave. building (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints)Â will commence the services for Clarence Peterson.Â Father of 3, grandpa to 7 and great grandpa to 9, he will be greatly missed.Â Although he passed away last September (in California) of health complications, the family awaited for Grandma Peterson to move back home to Montana from California.
Every person who met and knew grandpa will always have an amazing story to tell about him.Â His bravery, sense of duty to his family and those around him.Â He walked boldly on this earth and fought to the very end.Â His strong hands helped those who were struggling, fought off those who were in his way, but were gentle enough to knead bread on a Saturday morning, read the paper and sip coffee and give pony rides on his knee.Â This is the grandpa I remember.
We all have moments in our lives that we can look back and reflect on what makes your Grandfather turn into Grandpa, or a Mother that turns into mom.Â Take the time now to find those memories that makes your family important to you.Â Â Even though it is hard to lose someone, I am proud to say I am a grand daughter of Clarence Peterson.
