Pics of the Funeral...

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from my Dad's funeral.  I am still not sure how to write down my feelings on paper.  I know I need to do it soon before I start forgetting events that took place.  The out pouring of love from family and friends was unreal.  I knew I had a special father but I'm not quite sure I really knew how many lives he touched.  I sometimes wonder if I took him for granted.  I hope he doesn't feel that I did and I hope he knows how grateful I truly am for the opportunity to be his earthly daughter!!

The boys at the mortuary prior to dressing Dad

Mitchel Reidhead, Aron Johnson, Randy, Treg Baum, & was so good to have Aron come home to visit, it had been way too long!  It was good to see all these boys together having a good time!!

Some of our favorite cousins...hope they know how much we love them!!

The Casket Bearers - Dave, Trav, Tim, Randy, Jody, Uncle Joe, Brandon, Ben, Ron, & Jake - I love that they flew the flag at half mast at the stake center.

As we were driving back to Heber from Taylor, starting about the Holbrook Y, I started noticing these little pink signs everywhere.  It meant so much and we thank the person who did it!

Thought this was nice of June's!

Dad's final resting place!

The Wagher's love your family so much! Seeing these pictures made me remember all the wonderful blessings that we received because we moved to a small town with people who had such great big hearts. Oh how I miss the halcyon days of my youth! I wish everyone could have the opportunity to have the Tenneys and other righteous Heber-folk be a part of their lives. It truly is a treasured part of my life that I often think of. Thank you...
