Great Grandpa Jack's Funeral

Nick and Cooper's namesake, John Gibbons, passed away this week. We were able to travel to Idaho for the funeral. The service was very peaceful. Some of the grandchildren sang, "How Great Thou Art." They spoke of how he was inherently good and an animal charmer. Nick was a pall bearer with all of his male cousins. Since Jack was in the Navy he was given a soldiers farewell. It was a beautiful service! It made me want to join the military just so that I could have such a beautiful farewell.
Mason stared scooting this weekend. I was able to catch up with an old friend from high school/college that lives in Idaho. So, minus the sadness of the funeral, it was a great trip.
