Over 50 people attended including his five sisters who all traveled 200 miles to get there. (There had been 11 children in their family but by 1999 only six of them were living.) There were several nieces and nephews and, of course, his 4 children and 7 grandchildren.
The party was a huge success. I will be forever grateful that we didn't "wait until next year" because next year did not come for Daddy. He would have been 85 today.
