Eugene Kreile Spencer's Funeral

On March 19th we remembered dear Grandpa Great....
(Thanks to Carlee who was smart enough to bring her camera!)
The display tables at the mortuary viewing.  Note all of the chocolate milk jugs - I was told he had saved many, many more than were displayed here.

It was a lovely funeral.  All of Eugene's children spoke.  Addie and Cate sang "How Can I Keep From Singing?"  Isaac accompanied them on the cello and I played the piano.  It was very fitting for Gene and his love of singing.  Tennile also provided a beautiful rendition of "A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief" for the closing hymn.

Unfortunately the weather took a turn for the worse right when we arrived at the Utah Veterens Cemetery.  There was a fierce wind and a light snow.
Some chilly pallbearers.

Wes with his cousins.
Kip and Dad were nice enough to attend.  Dad was still in a wheelchair due to his knee injury.  He is back on his feet now!
