I want to thank all of you for your kind comments about Grandpa.
We headed over to Prosser and were there for four days. It was nice to see family, but the reason was less than ideal. Hubby’s dad passed away in 1999 and his uncle, the oldest son, in 2004, but all six of his surviving children, and large portions of their families, were in attendance. At the church service the pastor asked for those in attendance who were related to please stand, Hubby said half the church stood up, and the place was standing room only. I didn’t attend, Bubba and I hung out at the hotel, Bubba barely made it through the graveside ceremony and that was only five minutes long, there was no way Bubba would have made it through the hour long funeral service.
We spent a lot of time out at the farm; chatting, playing croquet, walking through the vineyard, eating, and drinking wine. A fitting tribute to Grandpa, I think.
