Uncle Bob is Laid to Rest
As Uncle Bob's casket was taken out of the hearse, there was a military presence by its side immediately. It was sad watching David and Russell pull their father's casket along. I remember watching my brothers do the same thing for my mom. Terry and Neil (Sherry and Shelly's husbands) were next and then Larry and Nick (Wendy's husband and son) were last. The flag on top pulled at my heart as I realized that when my own dad passes away, he will have one on top of his casket as well.
After the luncheon, we went back to the hotel to change. I wasn't feeling too well so we stayed at the hotel. Lisa wasn't feeling too swift either. Melon Man and I decided to head out and find something to eat for dinner. We went to some steak-ish place and were quite dissatisfied. We should have just gone to Applebee's or Chili's. Oh well....
