Day 32-

Day 32-

We spent the day in Ouray visiting with Alan. (Fuzzy)

He drove down from Grand Junction for the day. Thanks, man.

Unbelievably we did not take any pictures. So caught up in the day, we did not even think about it.

We walked around town a bit, had some lunch, and had a great time catching up.

Toward the end of the day is when we got the sad news, Mary's dad is not going to make it much longer. He had been sick for years, and wanting to go meet his Maker for awhile now.

Mary spent some time researching flights. We are not near an airport, so we are changing up our plans a bit and getting her to the airport in Colorado Springs at noon, day after tomorrow.

*******Break from the Ride Report***************

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I am weeks behind in the Ride Report.

Mary did fly home, and was able to spend some quality time with her dad before he passed.

Last week we went to his memorial service and it was a sad & uplifting time rolled in together.

Sad, in that he will be missed, uplifting in that there were many friends that shared stories of great times they had with him.

He was a disabled Korean Vet (but you'd not know it, even though he was carrying around a fair amount of shrapnel), and some of the stories related by his fellow Vets, family and friends had everyone in stitches. The minister had to cut it short, suggesting that we continue in the fellowship hall. lol

At 15 he enlisted in the Navy, changed to the U.S. Army at 17, and then later to the U.S. Marines. (that is a whole other story)

The Military Honor Service at the Corinth National Cemetery was an honor to attend. John was well remembered.

There was not a dry eye during Taps or the folding & Presentment of the American Flag.


Day 33 of the Ride Report will continue in the next day or two.
