Vivian Mae Carl Ostergard.

Good morning, it is Sunday.

Yesterday was Grandma Mike's Memorial Service. It was held in the community center in Oakville WA. There was a very good turn out and it was nice to see everyone even though we were there for a very somber reason. John, being the oldest brother, gave a very nice talk about his mom. He talked about how different living conditions were without running water and such than we live in today. He talked about being in a small house with many siblings. But mainly he talked about how all this basically worked out because his mom was such a strong person. Afterwards we all just hung out, ate, and had a good time.

Here is a picture of Grandma Mike with all of us from probably 7 years ago.


This is a snapshot of a picture board that was at the memorial service of Grandma's life. Preston's middle name comes from Grandma Mike. She was Vivian Mae Carl before she became Vivian Mae Carl Ostergard.


And just a little added excitement to the day. Somehow Preston and Lillie managed to lock my keys in the car while getting a few things from the car. After trying with a coat hanger, we called AAA. They were there within a half an hour and did the trick in a snap.


Today we have Stef and Derek's wedding. Should be a great day.


See you tomorrow.

What a nice family picture with Grandma Mike! It's good everybody could get together for the service. Too bad about the car keys. Our next door neighbors locked themselves out of their house about a week ago and had to borrow our phone book to call a locksmith.
