Besides the short service (at noon) at the cemetery there were fun things going on Friday noon and night, Saturday evening, Sunday (most of the day) until Monday when they started heading back to their homes in Oregon, Washington, Utah, Nevada, California, Kansas, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania.
Some of the “fun” things were eating together, fishing, kayaking in Uncle Jim’s pond, driving and riding in Uncle Jim’s Gator, a wiener roast (in spite of the rain) and of course lots of storytelling and visiting.
