My memories of grandpa

Colaborador: jedbrinton Created: 1 year ago Updated: 7 months ago

I went over to Grandma and Grandpa's house often when I was little. Grandpa taught me how to use a phone book for the first time--while I sat next to him on the couch in their TV room by the kitchen. He taught me how to take good care of board games, toys, books (so the pages wouldn't tear when I tended to want to be quick). I remember his manner--so gentle, loving, careful, and not rushed. He always wanted to teach me something new--and I loved it because somehow he knew how to reach me at my level. I remember his cold hand on the back of my shoulders when he asked me how I was doing. Grandpa and I would spend a lot of time in his study. On many occasions, he would pull a book off of his shelf (and there were a lot of books) and then teach me what he had learned from it. He often shared his testimony of the Gospel with such clarity and love. I remember the things he had on his desk, and how they were organized. I liked to play with the rolodex he had on top of his desk. He only let me do this once I had shown enough proficiency that I knew how to be very careful with it. When it was Christmas time, he would teach me about the candle he placed in his window remembering how Jesus is the light of the world. We spent time in the basement doing puzzles, going through the carefully organized storage room to find something Grandma needed in the kitchen (there were dates written in marker on the lids of all the food and they were rotated), working in the back yard pulling weeds, clapping our hands by the cherry tree so birds wouldn't eat the cherries, and walking the path past the garden to get to the tennis court. Later on when I was older, he taught me about his experiences serving as a doctor in World War 2. I was interested in events I had read in history books and would ask him what it was like to live through them, the Great Depression, for example. I remember him in our kitchen one time the summer before my freshman year of college, helping me think through what I wanted to study in college. We talked about the pros and cons to my different ideas so I could make my decision thoroughly. I remember that I told him of my desire to ultimately be a mother in the home, but to have studied in an area that would allow me to find a job I could fall back on if needed. This made a big difference in helping me think through what I wanted most to learn while in college. I loved Grandpa's welcome when we would show up at his door--he would say "greetings" while raising both hands in the air--full of enthusiasm and joy for life. He loved to learn and he was always willing to share what he had learned. He often paused and pulled me aside to teach me something in that very moment that was important, even though it took extra time. I remember him saying with a smile, on several occasions, that he was still young...at heart. He was so friendly with neighbors and others, always striking up conversations with others. These are just a couple of fun remembrances for me. I'm sure he is working now on the other side of the veil just as hard as he did while here on this earth. I can picture him with a big smile on his face bearing his testimony to those who haven't yet accepted the Gospel. I love Grandpa and am grateful to have had a moment to think of what fond memories I have with him.

Peaches

My grandma was a very hard worker. She made homemade bread, grew a garden, and made healthy meals for her family. She had a huge food storage room with many items including home canned foods. She died shortly before I got married. I always wished that my husband and my children could have met her. One day, when my husband and our two young girls were visiting my grandpa, we shared a meal together. Grandpa served us some delicious peaches from a jar that my grandma had canned before she died. We shared a special moment together eating the sweet peaches and remembering Grandma. I am grateful that my husband and my two oldest kids were able to experience a little part of my grandma even though they never got to meet her.

When I think about grandpa...

Colaborador: jedbrinton Created: 1 year ago Updated: 7 months ago

Grandpa Brinton: -taught me how to read a book very carefully so as to not bend/rip the pages -taught me how to read the phone book -I remember sitting on the couch with him and a book open in front of us! This happened almost every time I was there -really old, but well-cared-for toys--every game piece in the game boards, etc. I played a game with grandpa most visits too. -loved to show me the garden and teach me how to help -told me each summer to prepare for when school started again. He would say that the teacher would most likely ask me to write what I did during the summer--he urged me to think about this and mabye even write it ahead of time. I did, and usually I found out that is exactly the first assignment my teacher gave. It felt good to already be on top of things, thanks to his thinking ahead -whenever he took us to the airport (which was pretty much every time) he would remind me about how to have a good time: "don't worry about yourself, just worry about making sure each person has fun and you will realize that this is the way you will have the most fun on your trip." When I took his advice, which I tried to do, I ended up LOVING the trip! -He would always arrive early to take us to the airport--and then offered to help in any way -"Greetings!" -Geneology -Helping us garden and weed. I especially have the picture in my mind of Grandpa jumping in the big green garbage can to compress the weeds. It worked every time--he never ceased to teach me no matter what we were doing! -Towards the end of Grandpa's life, I knew he wouldn't be around one day and I would wish I could talk to him. I tried to have him tell me whatever he would about his life. I loved hearing about his service in the war. I loved hearing his testimony of the Gospel--that was just apart of everything he did and came out when he talked about just about anything. I am so GRATEFUL for my dear Grandma and Grandpa Brinton!!

Grandpa Brinton, by Suzanne Hendrix

Grandpa Brinton, Sherman Simons Brinton, by Suzanne Hendrix Grandpa Brinton has taught me a lot by word and example. The lesson that stands out prominently in my mind is that learning is an important and life long pursuit. He taught and demonstrated this principle almost every time visited with Grandpa. The usual greeting from Grandpa was, "What are you learning in school Suzanne?" After this initial question, a discussion would always develop about a school topic that I would tell him about and then a related topic that he would tell me about. Usually Grandpa would know all about the topic I had learned in school, but occasionally I would be able to tell Grandpa about something he knew less about. Grandpa always listened intently and asked appropriate questions to understand completely. The related topic that Grandpa would bring up for discussion was nearly always new tome and I always came away knowing more than before. In these discussion, Grandpa demonstrated his interest in continued learning in his life and also encouraged a love of learning in my life. This love of learning is an important part of my life and I hope to pass it on to my descendants.

Grandpa's Sincerity and Love for People

Colaborador: jedbrinton Created: 1 year ago Updated: 7 months ago

Two of the traits I most admired in Grandpa were his genuine love for people and his sincerity in his interactions with everyone. One story I love about him that shows these traits is about a time a policeman pulled him over on his way to work. Grandma and I were with him and we were a little late. As the policeman came to the window of the car, Grandpa proceeded to thank him very sincerely and lovingly for the reminder (maybe to slow down?) and the wonderful service he was giving. Grandpa had a lot of nice things to say to him, so Grandma and I got out and walked the rest of the way to work to get things started at the office. I think this is the way Jesus would have been while he was on the earth, never in too much of a hurry to spend time with, and show real interest in other people. by Cathi Steinberg

Life timeline of Sherman Simons Brinton

Sherman Simons Brinton was born on 1 Jul 1917
Sherman Simons Brinton was 12 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.

Sherman Simons Brinton was 22 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

Sherman Simons Brinton was 28 years old when World War II: Combat ends in the Pacific Theater: The Japanese Instrument of Surrender is signed by Japanese Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu and accepted aboard the battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay.

Sherman Simons Brinton was 40 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
1957

Sherman Simons Brinton was 48 years old when Thirty-five hundred United States Marines are the first American land combat forces committed during the Vietnam War.

Constructed by the German Democratic Republic, starting on 13 August 1961, the Wall cut off West Berlin from virtually all of surrounding East Germany and East Berlin until government officials opened it in November 1989. Its demolition officially began on 13 June 1990 and finished in 1992. The barrier included guard towers placed along large concrete walls, accompanied by a wide area that contained anti-vehicle trenches, "fakir beds" and other defenses. The Eastern Bloc portrayed the Wall as protecting its population from fascist elements conspiring to prevent the "will of the people" in building a socialist state in East Germany.

Sherman Simons Brinton was 74 years old when The World Wide Web is opened to the public. The World Wide Web (WWW), also called the Web, is an information space where documents and other web resources are identified by Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), interlinked by hypertext links, and accessible via the Internet. English scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1989. He wrote the first web browser in 1990 while employed at CERN in Switzerland.
