A Night with the Peeps

Last night was spent hanging with a few of the peeps. Michele and I were partners in a game of spades, and we lost rather spectacularly after I made a very silly play. I'll just have to pay better attention next time.

I did manage to get in a few photographs before the party broke up.

Saying Goodbye to Friends is Never Easy

Said goodbye to David Baker yesterday. He died June 27th from the cancer that had been growing in his lungs and other parts of his body, and had remained undetected until just 23 days prior. It was a sad emotional day.

Family members carry David C Baker to his final resting place in St Michael's Cemetery in Sioux Falls, SD

The silver lining on an otherwise bleak day was reuniting with old friends, and naturally, I was armed with my camera:

Richard Baker and his 19 grandchildren

Richard Baker and his 6 remaining children

Steve Baker and his 4 children

Shane, Brian, May and Ron
