Family Moments

Last week, Sept. 20-23, 2006, we had some rather brief visits from my nephew, Jasel and his girlfriend, Riah, and from Jalise and Byron, and Calvin and Elise. They came to attend the funeral of their other Grandpa/Great-Grandpa Bill Peters, of Rosthern. Dad and I attended the funeral too, and when I saw that we wouldn't have much time with them, I insisted on a group photo to prove they had really been here. We did it right beside the Mennonite Church in Rosthern.
