Garth Peder Jensen: Biographies, Writings, Obituary, miscellany
Grandpa was working on a massive biography, which he left unfinished, but in the capable hands of his daughter Sandi Jensen Griffiths. I anxiously await it's completion. But until then, this is a good short history of a wonderful man.
In his later years, Grandpa asked me to illustrate a story he had written. He gave me total discretion and asked that it become a children's story. I made extensive changes to it to shorten it, and illustrated it using Grandpa and my husband and son as models. And yes, I am the granddaughter pictured, to whom he is telling his bedtime story. Grandpa ordered over one hundred copies which he passed out to his family and friends. The photo below is the cover of the paperback book. Here is a link to where it may be seen online: http://www.lulu.com/us/en/shop/garth-peder-jensen/grandpas-true-bedtime-story/paperback/product-14268206.html
