Wednesday

Alan got back to Independence, just fine with his sister...I have spoken with them several times......Independence is in northeast Iowa...very pretty small town with a population of around 6,000..he is taking photos so I will have to wait and share when he gets back late Friday evening...
They spent the day, at his sisters farm outside of town....a big family gathering where they talked about all the mischief growing up..Alan said there was alot of laughter and love...one of the nephews grilled burgers outside as it was so hot..

He said last night as he and his brother were driving back to the hotel where they are all staying, they pulled up to Mom's Baptist church (where she was very active for many years)..Jeff (his youngest brother) stopped the car and said, "Would you look at that"...the church has a electronic marquee and they had put Mom's photo on it with the time of the funeral....Mom's name and photo up in lights! She would have loved that...
