Funeral and a new video

The funeral services were very good, and I learned a few things about my grandparents that I had never known. I see a lot of dead bodies in my line of work, but for some reason I did not want to see my grandfather that way. I think it has a lot to do with I would prefer to remember him the way he was. I did go and look, and he just didn't look the same. Of course the fact that he wasn't wearing his glasses probably had a lot to do with it. The amount of family that came to the funeral was amazing. I don't know how many people were there but I would guess there were over 300 people at the service. I learned that my grandparents have 50 some grandchildren 90 some great grandchildren and about 13 great great grandchildren. That is a lot of people. It's amazing when you get together with that many relatives. It really makes you realized how important families can be.




So on a happier note. I placed a new video on here; this is a video of a scout project that we worked on with our scout group. My wife was the scout leader and we were trying to teach the scouts the importance of taking care of our communities and our earth. As you can see from the video we went to our local park and did some cleanup as well as pulled some weeds from the tennis courts. The kids all thought the video was great, I hope you enjoy it.


  1. Good video. How did you get it within your blog site?

  2. sorry about the death of your grandfather.  They always look different after they pass away.  I guess because the soul is gone.  I hope you feel better soon.  be safe!

  3. Sounds like your grandparents really are leaving behind a long legacy!
    That\'s so awesome!  I really like the video.  Take care.
