The weekend in review!

Sierra loves water so we took her to the nearby resevoir. It is man made but beautiful with the Catskill mountains in the background. I love the picture of her and her Daddy!!!
She loved seeing her shadow!!! She kept pointing to hers and then noticed Scotts and mine too!!

On Saturday my husband son,Paul, and I attended the funeral of my dear friend Art. Art had been Paul's Cub Scout Den leader many years ago and Paul is also a friend of Art's son Matt. It was the most amazing tribute to an amazing man. There was standing room only at the church. The scriptures were perfect, the music and hymns were comforting, and the stories shared of this wonderful man made you both laugh and cry. And we were all stunned t learn that the oncologist who had been caring for Art for more than 11 years was in attendence too. Art and Ellen had traveled to a city over an hour away to see this doctor who they had such great faith in and respect for. And she, in return, let Art's family know about how she felt about Art by taking the time to attend his funeral. It pretty much said it all!!!And today , if you drove by the church you would see on the sign the expression" Lookin' Good"! Anyone who knew Art knows how he used that expression often over the last 11 years when asked how he was doing. He was always "Looking Good" I will continue to pray for his family but Art's legacy of great optimism will help them through this difficult time.
