First, I want to thank you for the prayers, emails, comments and messages of condolences to our family. The comfort I have felt has made this time easier to bear.
Wednesday morning was a challenge. Funeral service was scheduled for 2:30 and by noon, there was 4 inches of snow on the ground. We knew many would not be able to get out. But these are tough farmers, friends and family who would be there. Our community fire department was there to sweep snow and help guests inside. Our many Amish neighbors were there with food and also sang during the service. There were as many horse buggies as there were trucks. My aunts, uncles, and cousins were there, many from out of town. Almost half of the church was filled with members of the Cattlemen’s Association. My dad would have been so proud.
Today, Friday, Kentucky is in line for another big snow storm. Possible 10-15 inches of snow in the next 24 hours. Pat is in Lexington with my niece to catch his flight back home on Sunday. I’m staying with Mom until Wednesday. Hopefully, all will go as planned.
These are pictures from my parents home. It is beautiful.See ya,
