His funeral was very special...we got to see something that not many people get to experience...a 21 gun salute...Grandpa use to be in the Navy, so my mom was able to arrange for this to happen.
Here is my Uncle Denny, Uncle James, my brother Dan,
my cousin Anthony, DJ, and my dad.
It was very hot and bright out...but I think the
glasses help hide the tears.
Ok, I know hes sideways, but I didn't rotate the pics before I added them...sorry!
The playing to Taps!!!
Here they are explaining the purpose of the 21 gun salute
Again I didn't rotate...sorry
The 21 gun salute
The folding of the flag
