The Saturday after school let out we made a trip to Portland for the memorial service for Don\’s cousin Casey.
We now have quite a few branches of both of our families in Portland.
Upon arrival we met up with Don\’s Uncle Bill and Aunt Pat. It was great catching up with them.
We rented a house in downtown Portland so that we could also stay with Corky & Meg. It was in a great, funky little area in SE Portland. Saturday night we had dinner with the immediate family.
Sunday we headed out to Mt. Tabor for a walk in the wilderness in the middle of the city.
Sunday evening was the service. It was great to see everyone and spend time together remembering Casey who was so full of life. I had been working with the family for weeks to create a photo slideshow that would run during the service. It\’s about 10 minutes long.
On Monday we headed over to Ross\’s house. They just moved in about a week ago. We got to spend about 24 hours with the Cantelo Family before heading home.
