Well, this past week was pretty tough, especially for Jakki. Her father passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday the 28th. We made an emergency dash down to Arkansas to be with her family and take part in the funeral. Jakki's dad wasn't in the best of health, but he had a great year of hunting, fishing and raising his daylillies. The obituary can be found at this link. Using photos from his life, some of which were taken by Jakki on her visit last July, the funeral home created a short video which can be viewed at this link. The weather was good for the service and the interment, and we got to see lots of Jakki's family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jakki and her family during this tough time.
