Lester E Hatfield

My dad passed away this last Sunday, April 10, 2011 at 6:25 pm.  I was there when he drew his final breath.  It was sad to see him go, but I wouldn't wish him back to this world for anything.  He struggled so hard for those final breaths. Now, he is in Heaven with his Creator, his parents, his sons, great-grands, sister, and brothers-in-law.   While we had a sort of reunion here at the services, he had one there as well.  I know we'll be together again one day.

Here are some photos of the Honor Guard at the graveside.  It was such a wonderful service.
