Funeral and Fire truck fun

My family had a funeral to attend today for my great aunt.  She was an awesome lady who fought the last two years of hers life.  Aunt Jean, was the last remaining sibling to my grandfather on my mothers side.  She grew up with 6 sisters and 3 brothers.  Thinking about this, back then it seems the families were all large and were able to manage financially.  See, my grandmothers siblings - 6 brothers and 3 sisters.  How ironic.  One of our memories is of her at Christmas's trying to steal every one's presents.  She really didn't want them, but it was her personality that made it fun.  We were very blessed to have her in our lives.  Aunt Jean will forever be missed.

After the funeral, we reconvened at the fire hall were my uncle is part of.  The kids had a blast climbing the fire trucks.

My uncle was in heaven given tours of the fire trucks.  He loves to show the kids all the cool equipment that he is able to use as a volunteer fire fighter.
