On Saturday Laura and I drove up to Farmington and attended the burial service of Laura's Aunt Melita, who passed away recently at the age of 96.
We were able to find the grave marker of Laura's grandparents, George and Mamie Baird, who passed away before Laura was born.
It was good that we were there, because we had to represent Laura's mom, who wasn't able to attend. The thing about funerals is that it brings family and friends together who haven't seen each other for many years.
Here are Laura and her cousin Chris Coombs, viewing a CD memorializing his mother.
This is another cousin, Dennis Coombs.
And here are Carly and her daughter Julia, with Shelby. Carly and Shelby are Laura's nieces. We get to see them a little more often than the other extended family members.
