Family Spotlight #1: Pictures and Memories For Milton Frederick Jenkins and Family

Wow, how the years go by. I was blessed to have met and gotten to know 3 out of 4 of my Great-Grandparents. However, I didn't get to met one of my Grandpa's and don't remember the other one.

I always called Milton -- Grandpa --.

I remember going to Oklahoma to see him and Grandma. At the time I don't recall knowing that she was his second wife. I would have only been 7 years old in 1983. I remember Grandpa Jenkins giving my brother and I a coloring book to color in. I don't know if this is a memory or I remember it because of the picture my mother owns of my brother and I coloring in the coloring books on Grandpa's porch. I also remember going to a park close by that had a rocketship slide. I remember playing there when we'd go visit them in Oklahoma.

I also remember visiting him in the nursing home. It was always a good time with him. I don't remember him ever getting mad, but I'm sure he would have at some point in life. I wish I could write more but I was 10 when he past away and I just don't remember a lot of the things he would talk about. I remember being at the funeral and crying in the restroom. Someone told me everything would be fine, and it helped calm me down.

I hope someone with more memories of Grandpa Jenkins and/or his wives or children will had comments to this post. I would love to make all the families come to life with the memories we all have to share.
