Redding CA - day 2 - the funeral

My 2 brothers drove in from Sacramento after midnight and so it was fun to wake up hearing their laughter through the hotel walls. We decided to take a morning drive up to Lake Shasta (which is where we would go on the houseboat with Chuck and Tami) during many a summer of my growing up. The lake was just how I remembered it.

So many friends were helping out making the day so beautiful.  The chapel was filled with flowers and the decorations for the luncheon were amazing.

The cemetary was so peaceful.  It was a natural setting and gorgeous.

Tami's yard was beautiful.  Every flower and bush was planted very specifically.  It was like heaven walking through her gardens.  She had several fountains.

All of us cousins, aunts and uncles came back to the house and played games and even jumped on the trampoline.  I had to show them I still had "my stuff!"
