Family, Funeral, Florida....

A quick update....

I am currently with my family, in Florida, for a funeral.  I am sad to say that my uncle, Que William Alldredge, passed away last Friday.  It has been a sad few days. However, I am really happy that I was able to make the trip to Florida to be with my cousins and other family that I have not seen in many, many years.  My mom and dad flew into Dallas on Sunday and then Valerie and I and mom and dad drove the 14 hours to Panama City, FL.  The funeral was on Tuesday and we are spending a few days so we can enjoy family, the beaches, take in the scenery, and more family time.

I am cherishing this time with all of my family.  I feel so lucky that I now live close enough that it is only a day drive away to see them.   I hope I can come again soon.

My uncle was a fun, kind and loving man.  I  have so many wonderful memories of him.  He will be dearly missed.

I will post pictures at a later date.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It sounds like he was a wonderful man.

I was wondering how you were doing. Hope you are getting settled ok.
You're in my thoughts.

Thanks for sharing Sherrie, it was a special time especially for us to spend time with you and Valerie traveling to and from Florida. The time with the extended family in Florida was memorable and I'm so glad that we were able to go.
