I hope to post about the homegoing celebration soon. We still have company and the funeral was only this morning. It was indeed a celebration. I just wanted to stop by and express my gratitude to the wonderful comments I received on the memorial picture. Dad C was always a shepherd at heart - even to the point of always loving to carry a walking stick that was long enough to be a staff! He had several lovely shorter sticks, but this was his one of choice. I heard in one of the stories about him that I'd never heard that he carried this one on a plane one time. You couldn't do that now!
I have to go back to work tomorrow now and try to dig out from under the e-mails, voice mails, and snail mails. But hopefully I can write tomorrow evening.
