Memorial Day Weekend!

Chris and I went to the cemetery today to put flowers on Dad's grave. I got these bright (Harley) orange daisies in at work today and had to buy them for Dad. While we were there we also cleaned the headstone and trimmed the grass in front of it. Dad always made sure that Grandpa's stone was cleaned and the area around it was well taken care of. We are going to make sure we do the same with his. We aren't sure who else was up there, but they left a beautiful pot of flowers and a poem written on a stained glass tile.

Part Two of An Extraordinary Day!



Waiting for the bikers.

We can't describe the feeling that came over us when all of these bikers came walking towards Dad's grave site.

We noticed as soon as Uncle Randy got close enough, he was carrying a small paper bag with him. We knew what was in the bag before he even opened it.

Here is Uncle Randy doing a shot with his brother.

Here are a couple of pictures of the bikes lined up getting ready to leave.
There is nothing like the sound of a Harley. When there are 25 of them together, your insides just shake.

We would like to thank all of the motorcyclists for making Saturday a day to remember.

An Extraordinary Day!

Every year, a group of motorcyclists get together on a Saturday and visit the graves of fallen 'brothers' and 'sisters'. Dad used to go on these bike runs every year with his brother Randy. This year, they came to visit Dad. It is great that Dad has not been forgotten. We are thankful that we got to be there on such an extraordinary day. We took a lot of pictures and will be sharing them soon.
