New Day

Monday, August 04, 2008

I can't believe its been 3 weeks since my last post... and I was doing so well!! We have been very busy and have had a lot of stuff going on lately.

Sean's grandpa (maternal) died, so we took a really quick trip back to Cincinnati for his funeral. He was in his 90's and had lived a very full life, yet in the end, I can't really say where he stood in light of eternity. The funeral was a stunning tribute to his life, however. He served in World War II, so there were a couple of army guys who played TAPS on the trumpet and retired the flag on his casket. He was also a firefighter in Cincinnati and later an arson investigator for 40 years, so two of the current fire chiefs stood by his casket the entire ceremony. At the end, a bagpipe player (bagpipe-ist??) played Amazing Grace to end the service. It was really nice.

All Sean's family was there from his mom's side... one of his cousins is having a baby soon-- so exciting! It was just so nice to be back in familiarity again. I love his family, and cannot wait to go back for Christmas. It was also about 25 degrees cooler in Cincinnati than it was at the time in Fresno, so that was a great break. :-)

Several more changes have been taking place in our life, but I have to go pick up the Indian food we just ordered for dinner, so that will have to wait.... hopefully the next update will come sooner... :-)

  2. Hi, Sheyenne! Good to hear from you. So where are you guys, and what church, and how long have you been there? Last I knew you were in North Carolina or something?

    And yes, my dad was very surprised and pretty confused. :)

    Thanks for the comment, and keep in touch!
