Dad and I had time to go through more things for his history.  I was also able to video record quite a few stories from his life.  A lot happens in 89 years.2019-9-21 Reedley (4)We visited the Reedley Cemetery and found Grandpa and Grandma and Dad’s little sister, Ruth.2019-9-20-Reedley-Trip-14.jpg


Dad says he’s got 10 more years in him.  I’m glad for that!  I will miss him these next 2 years while we’re away.2019-9-21 Reedley (2)
