Stewart's Memorial Service
We (Ellen, John and myself) are on our way to Stewart's Memorial Service, which will be in Elgin, IL at the First Congregational Church, U.C.C., on Monday, March 25, 2014, 2pm. I'll be speaking, as well as Damon Crockett, Stewart's grandson, and a friend, Chuck Keyser. There'll be music, including Stewart's barbershop quartet. It will be a good gathering of family and friends. We're driving out - we left Sat. a.m., and we're in Erie, PA in a motel at the moment. Last night we had supper at Latinos Restaurant, an authentic, family-run Mexican restaurant. The owner loved to talk with his patrons, his mother cooked the meal, the cheese enchiladas were good. We hope to be in Elgin for supper. There is snow ahead - not too much, we hope. Betsey, we learned, drove up to Elgin a day early to avoid the brunt of the storm which is in Missouri today.
