The Man Who Married Us

W. Grant Bangerter  
This man married Brad and I, on this day.

He has a power I will never forget. He married my siblings. He was in a wheelchair and then they escorted him to his seat while he proceeded to the ceremony.

He is such an amazing man. My mom grew up next to his family in Alpine, and he passed away Sunday at the age of 91. That means that when he married me he was 91.

I remember when my grandma took me to his house about 2 years ago. I asked him if he would be the person to marry me and my husband.

He said, "Well you better hurry!! I'm not lastin much longer! Do you have a man in mind?"

I said, "No, I better find one, and quick!"

I am so glad I had the opportunity to be a part of his life, and his grandchildren as well.

I love them all.
