Richard and Jack
Friday evening was Doug's grandpa's viewing, and Saturday was the funeral and luncheon. Doug's grandpa was such a special man. Everyone in the funeral kept saying how he was always serving. There was even a story by someone who said that instead of going to home teach, and asking, "Is there anything we can do for you?", he would be proactive and say, "I noticed your front porch light is out. My partner will go change it for you while I teach the lesson." He would find a way to help where he could. He had even been serving at the cannery a few hours before he passed away. You rarely hear of people serving so much anymore these days, which is sad. It was really inspiring to me to try and help others as often as possible.
The service was beautiful, and there was a lunch immediately following the cemetary. I went and got Jack at our neighbor's, Amber and Clayton's, and came back with him. We were able to visit with all of the Thornton aunts, uncles, and cousins. The lunch was right during his afternoon nap, so he was very cranky. This is him on the way home.
