With His Boots On


This morning Karen’s Dad left us to make the journey to his eternal reward. Our family was all gathered around when he made his peaceful transition. We dressed him for the journey in his western best, including his boots, then shrouded this World War II Navy Air Corps Veteran in the American Flag. Tomorrow is his 91st Birthday so as he left the house we all gathered to sing Happy Birthday!

    So sorry to read about your dad’s death. We know how difficult it is to adjust to life without your loved one. He will be missed. Try to remember all the wonderful times you had together and cherish each memory with a smile. For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains. May God grant all your family peace.
    Love & Hugs,

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
