Grandpa's funeral

We learned that Grandpa David had passed away on Saturday, May 31. We packed our things, and waited for Lynette and Rusty to drive in from their weekend visit in Ohio. We traveled out with Mom, Dad, Lynette and Rusty.

Tyler enjoyed playing with Grandma and Lynette in the backseat during part of the journey.

It was touching to see the overwhelming numbers of people who came from near and far. The viewing was like a reunion - many people were there that I had not seen in awhile and it made us feel loved and supported. Dad and his brothers loved and respected their father deeply. I think that they honored him well with the service and burial. It may be morbid to think about, but I hope that it's a long time until I have to bear the death of a parent.
