The life lessons: Did you know a dogs only purpose is hunting? I still call B.S. on that one Grandpa. Fishing, playing with hot wheels in the living room. All 9 million pictures you showed me of rocks in New Mexico(how and why does one person know so much about rocks??). Coors, camping, La Cygne Lake, smoke stacks, target practice with beer cans off the fence, making lightning bug jewelry.......So many memories came flooding back today. Thank you for all of them. We are peace, knowing you are finally at peace. Mass of Christian Burial will be 10 am Wednesday August 1, 2018 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in La Cygne.
