It has been a busy week. Sunday, the family made funeral arrangements for Dad. Monday was a time of preparation, with each doing their part. Tuesday afternoon and evening was visitation with many folks coming to pay respects.
Wednesday (yesterday), was the funeral and burial. Weather was cold and rainy, and because of that weather, we held the committal service at the funeral home. The rain abated just enough to allow the family to have a brief time of prayer graveside.
As we went back to our cars, the rain began to fall again. We went to a restaurant where a simple buffet luncheon had been prepared for the [large] family.
Sylvia and I were particularly pleased that Briana was in Michigan to celebrate her mother’s birthday. That meant that she was with us on that day. As is the family tradition, they took photos after the meal.
Sylvia is with her sisters and brother as they are organizing and wrapping up their father’s affairs. They’ll be working on that until Saturday, when the siblings will return to their respective homes.

While responding to comments on my previous post, I took time to reinstall the latest WordPress update. That solved my problem with posting from this computer.
