What's in a name?

In my last post, I mentioned that my dad, and grandfather served in the military. I had asked my mom for pics, and she got them to me just a little late. However, I could not have these beautiful reminders of my heritage without sharing them.

I am a Nydegger by birth. What's in a name? Well I will tell you...

Irvin B. Nydegger...isn't he handsome?

My grandpa was wonderful. He loved his family, cherished his wife, and was so devoted to taking care of their every need. He was truely a man of god, who honored his priesthood, and left through his name a legacy that to this day I am reminded of often.

Frederick John Nydegger...quite a looker himself!

My daddy! The noble name of Nydegger lives on through him. I am so grateful for his example, and love for life. I am so blessed to benefit from his wisdom, and insight.

Even though I am now blessed to be a Kunz, I will always bear the Nydegger name in my heart. It helps me remember the great responsibility I have of honoring them, as well as my Heavenly Father. Thank you for the legacy that you have created, and continue to create. I love you!

Thanks for posting this! It's a great reminder to those of us who do not have a direct tie to the military men/women to help protect us! Grandpa was great!
