Yesterday . . .

Sam and I flew with Steve, Lorie and little Mac to Amarillo for the funeral of Sam and Steve's 'Uncle Tom' - though he was technically a cousin of their dad - but who was partly raised by their (Sam and Steve's) dad's parents. Did you follow that?

Anyway, Tom was a wonderful man, and died last week at the ripe page of 92. He was a dear man, and the funeral was a great tribute to him.

The youngest attender of the funeral was 10 month-old Mac. And apart from one short cry, he was PERFECT during the service.
AND he was a GOOD little traveler. Oh yes!
This was the most time I've spent with him ... and I am even more enchanted than before.
What a sweetie.

Here are some pics:

On the left is Uncle 'Dub' (Samuel Williams Carmack IV. (My husband is SWC V (because Dub only had girls), and my son is SWC VI). Cousin-in-law Randall is holding the main attraction, Mac!
Here's Tom's granddaughter Molly, with her four month-old precious, precious baby, Lelu (guessing on the spelling). Lelu didn't actually attend the funeral service, but so delighted us during the meal time. She smiled A LOT, but my camera never captured it...
Here Mac is playing with his cousin-once-removed (?), Linda. In the background is Tom's widow, Frankie...
Here Mac is giving Steve some hair cream (uh, drool)...
Lorie and son are walking to the plane to head back home. Mac is ready!...
Here is ze plane!
Steve and Mac are getting ready to board...
It was a good trip, but we all decided that we need to get together on HAPPY occasions instead of SAD. 'Course little Mac and Lelu helped make it as delightful as possible. Oh yes.

What a cute baby! I love the one where he is inspecting the hair. Sweet, sweet Mac.

Safe travels.... brave soul in a small plane. (I don't do small planes.)
