A final goodbye yesterday...

yesterday was the final goodbye to my dad. The service was wonderful. He had taps played by the Honor Guards and then they folded a flag up for mom. (It was D-Day) Very moving. My brother Dan picked out beautiful choices of songs to be played during the service and the choir was excellent. Then the service ended with a bagpiper playing Amazing Grace as she led the family out of the church. It was wonderful and heartbreaking at the same time. As a final goodbye, I will post one last picture saying exactly how I feel right this moment. Thank you to everyone for your support.

Hugs, Pattboo-i-miss-you-edit

It sounds as though it fitted him perfectly, and was exactly as he would have wished.

Big hugs luv. ♥

That sounds like a wonderful celebration of his life.

Still, it's hard to lose someone we love that much.

Hugs and prayers.
