Six of us stood for Mr. Williams today. Don stacked some flags to augment the live flag holders. It looked good. Thanks Don!
There was a big turnout of friends and family at the funeral home. No rain for the funeral home portion, which was good. Keith Longacre took over for the procession and cemetery portion after. Hopefully they didn't get rained on, either.
