Saying goodbye

Yesterday was a long day. I attended an amazing funeral. Brad's Uncle was a volunteer fireman for 62 years!  Uncle Art was a very neat man and he touched many lives over the years. 

Here is a link to an article about him in the Houston Chronicle. Arthur Hewitt

This firetruck that he is picture with was what carried him to his final resting place. Neatest funeral procession I have EVER seen. We were lead through League City by firetruck, ambulances and a HUGE police escort. As we passed fire stations they would have their ladder trucks out and stood at attention. Very moving. At the graveside there was 3 fly by's, taps played, 21 gun salute (he was also a POW in WWII), amazing grace played on the bagpipes, and the fire mans last call over the radio. Very moving.

The patriot guard was also part of the escort. This was as we exited the funeral

Here are some pictures I took with my phone as we arrived at the graveyard.

Later that night we attended a wedding for one of the girls we worked with when we were youth volunteers.  Needless to say I crashed last night and slept hard and long.

This evening we celebrated my father-in-laws birthday. I also got to learn how to make a quick pillow case.  Sew fun and sew easy!  I can't wait to get started on them. They will be nice to have many premade for birthday gifts.  Then all I need to do is run down to Marcia's and have their name put on them.  Not only will they make a perfect personalized gift, but very affordable and useful!!! 

So now I am watching some Big Brother.  Yes I am watching it, I love this show. Can't help myself. Tomorrow no plans other than being around the house and sewing!!!

Oh if you are reading my blog and enjoy it. Could you do me a favor? If you can become a follower!

See ya later!
