A young great-grandson did one of the readings; a grandson told his grandfather's and family's story; a granddaughter read a wonderful letter to her grandfather; a great-grandson took his suit jacket off and put it over his great grandmother to help keep her warm as he shivered in the strong, cold wind. This is a large family full of love and respect and to whom family is everything. During some of the worst weather we've experienced doing this, we wouldn't've been anywhere else than with this family to help them provide final honors to him.
