Fort Pierce, FL - 11/27/2011

Today we spent the day with Jim's Aunt Mary.  Aunt Mary is Jim's dad's youngest sister.  She moved to Florida from Delaware several years ago with her husband of twenty-nine years, Eddie Weatherlow, or Uncle Butch, as Jim has always called him.  Eddie passed away in October after a long battle with many medical issues.  Today was the memorial service to remember him.  We were really glad we could be a part of it and be there to support Aunt Mary.

We went to church first thing in the morning with Aunt Mary.  She attends Tabernacle Ministries in Vero Beach, Florida.  It is a great non-denominational church.  The pastor, Pastor Dave, is a multi-talented man.  He not only preached a fantastic sermon, but also writes songs and sings.  The praise and worship team at Tabernacle Ministries was wonderful, too.  They sang a great variety of songs, from contemporary Christian music to traditional gospel songs.

Perfect kite flying day!

After a quick lunch, we headed to Vero Beach for a little while.  There are several public parks with beach access right off of Highway A1A.  We easily found a nice one with plenty of parking for the RV.  The water was too rough to go for a swim, and the wind was really blowing.  So we took our kites out instead!  I'm not sure we have ever had such good wind for flying kites.  It was a LOT of fun!

Beautiful day!

We headed back to Aunt Mary's for a little cookout before we headed to the church for the memorial service.  We enjoyed hot dogs, hamburgers, pie, and the kids got to watch Disney Channel on cable.  It was a big night for them!

We went over to Tabernacle Ministries for the memorial service for Uncle Eddie.  He always loved music and had played in several bands over the years.  He had many friends that attended to express their condolences to Aunt Mary, reminisce and play music in his honor.  We were really glad we could make it.

Tomorrow we are headed out towards Jacksonville to my sister's house.  We are taking Aunt Mary out for breakfast first, though.  We are so glad to see her and spend time with her.
