At the Cemetary

gathering at the cemetery in Scofield.
placing flowers on the new headstone for Uncle Dick

dedicating the grave

Larry present a case for Uncle Dick's flag from his military service
After the official stuff, we stood around for a few minutes telling stories about Uncle Dick.
The favorite story was when Uncle Dick shot out the window of his brand new truck while trying to shoot at a fox. That story was TOP SECRET until just a few months ago.
Rick and Cole
Bette was telling the story of the first time she met Dick--at a dance.
Uncle Dick loved to dance with the ladies.
I made Rick take a picture of me to document that I was actually in attendance.

We gathered back at the house after the cemetery to visit and snack.
It was a beautiful day.

Glad to actually see you in the pictures for a change, although those scout pictures were memorable..
