My Grandpa Jensen died and his funeral was on Monday. I was fortunate enough to make it to his funeral, thanks to wonderful friends who watched the girls while Jon was at work. I am so glad I went, aside from seeing family that I haven't seen in far too long, I learned things about my grandpa that I didn't know (or didn't remember). My grandpa was a triplet born in 1920 (Willard, Willis, William...talk about confusing!). Their family were good friends/neighbors to David O Mckay. Grandpa and his brothers were the first triplets on church record to serve a mission together. They went to San Antonio. Right after they got home all 3 were drafted into WWII, grandpa going to Japan and his brothers to Europe. His brother Willis was killed in France. Grandpa was in the military police who were tasked with liberating prisoners of war and clean up after the atomic bomb. He had several Japanese baby clothes from mothers who would hand him their dead babies and walk away. Can you just imagine all the things he saw during his service!? The rest of his life was pretty regular, work in a factory, have 8 kids, serve several missions with his wife. He lived a long, good life (he was 5 weeks shy of his 95th birtday, so in my opinion that counts at making it to 95!)
Can you tell they are siblings?
