Blogspot didn't like me yesterday and wouldn't let me post, but yesterday was Loretta's funeral. It was lovely, and about 50 people came. Barry was a pallbearer. I sang two songs, "Lonesome Valley" and "Just a Closer Walk With Thee." The Methodist minister from Waukon gave the sermon and did a nice job with his homecoming-themed message.
We accompanied her casket to the gravesite and then afterward had lunch at the home of a hospital volunteer who had spent quite a bit of time with Loretta in the past couple of weeks.
