Some people went for another trailer ride that morning. Here's Sandy and cousin Phil. I learned from looking at old photos that she and Willis' boys played together as kids, before my Grandpa Duane and Grandma Linda moved to Garden City.
My mom took these photos of her Uncle Ray, and Jacque waving.
Ray and Lloyd.
Joanna, her granddad Willis, and Gayle and Phil.
Afterwards, we congregated for church services in Mary's beautiful garden. She obviously spent a lot of time working in it. Everyone enjoyed it so much. She sent some photos around which I tried to download, but they didn't have enough pixels left for me to use. Sorry!
During the reunion we learned that Ray's melanoma had come back, so on Sunday the family had an anointing ceremony for him, led by Uncle Dan, who is a retired minister for the Church of God. He didn't preach a sermon, but invited the family up to testify to their faith and prayers for Ray and all of us.
Doesn't the hibiscus bush in Mary's garden make a lovely backdrop? Nature is God's creation!
