Moyle Christian Jensen


November 15, 1932 - November 17, 2008

Just taking a big, deep breath here.

I am going to miss you Grandpa. You've been such a major presence in my life. It's going to be so different not to have you around at times when you should be. I can't help but think of how joyous the moment was when you got to see Grandma again. Seeing her without her oxygen, and you without the pain this cancer had caused. I think of you seeing Jerry again. I'm sure that was a wonderful moment as well. Seeing your parents, your siblings who have gone before you. What a reunion you must be enjoying right now, though the Jensen Reunion will never be the same again. Don't worry grandpa, none of us will forget whose we are. I'm proud to be your granddaughter, and will always remember the things you've taught us all. You'll be in my heart.

I am sorry for your loss. But you are so right how happy he must be to see his loved ones on the other side. I knew that my great grandma is taking care of my little ones before they came down. We are so lucky to know these things.

Thanks Amanda. It is awesome to have the knowledge that we do. I've pictured my babies coming straight from a place with my grandma too, actually I had a really vivid dream about that before Ryan was born. I can't imagine dealing with death without the gospel. I was looking forward to seeing you this weekend, hope your trip to Madison's baptism goes well :)

That was such a sweet post! I felt like I was eaves dropping on such an intimate conversation. I am so sorry for your loss. You are right though, right now is most definitely a joyous time for your grandfather. :-)

So sweet! I bet you had tears in your eyes the whole time you were writing this. I keep feeling like I'm under control, and then I read somthing about him and on come the waterworks! It's good, though. It reminds us what's really important in life. Can't wait to see you in a couple of hours!
