My parents got back from vacation Sunday.
On Monday evening we all gathered together.
To pay our respects to Steve.
My mom said my dad disappeared to the garage
for awhile Monday afternoon.
When he returned, he came bearing a coffin for Steve.
Mom had the kids decorate it.
The boys all put ties on for the ceremony.
The girls put bows in their hair.
Then Steve was removed from the freezer.
And placed in his pine box lined with tissue paper.
Brookelynn prepared an obituary.
We tried to be very somber.
My daddy placed the final nails in the coffin.
Well said, Jakie.
