D.C. and family.

Monday, June 10, 2019

Let me start by saying I hope to never visit Arlington (as in D.C.) Traffic is crazy. We had dinner this afternoon/evening where we'll be picked up for the memorial service then had dinner with my stepmother and 3 cousins only one of whom I knew. There will be more at the service. Now I just need some rest.

    The family get together was great because I haven't seen some of these family members in decades. There were about 2 dozen of us there so lots of good fun and memories but I would like to have more get togethers that don't involve a funeral. My siblings and I are now the oldest generation. emoticon

    I was impressed with the way the service was handled. The minister was great and told us that when it was time for the Lord's prayer that everyone was to say the version they normally use and not to watch her lips because it could mix us up. We didn't get any of that for the memorial service for the uncle who went down when their plane went down losing the lives of all 3 aboard. He did get a plaque, though.

    I really enjoyed the family get together. I have not seen some of them since we were young kids. I don't think anyone wanted to leave the gathering to head back home. Larry and I got an extra time with my stepmother and 2 cousins-one I've visited through the years and one I've never met. We had a few fun hours there then it was back to the room to pack up for the trip home. One more leg and we can rest.
