This past Labor Day weekend was Dad's "deck party" to celebrate his life. He would have been proud of the turnout and how wonderful the party was. The food was delicous, the company was wonderful and the beer was plentiful and cold. There could not have been better weather. It was sunny, not too hot and never a drop of rain. I'd like to think Dad had a hand in that! ("It's not gonna rain on my party!") It was nice to see all of the family that came in from California, Salt Lake and Missouri and the friends that traveled from Illinois and all over Colorado. There was a table of photos and memories of Dad that was very touching and Beth did an amazing job of putting it together. I did not take many photos but will add plenty when Anne Marie sends her cd of photos! A huge thanks to her for that!
