1986

This was a year marked by both joys and sadnesses. Jeff graduated from Pebblebrook High School in June and made plans to enter Florida State University in Tallahassee. Also in June, Rod's Mother suffered a major stroke and died two days later on June 15. She had been in good health up to that point and was packing her bags for a trip to visit Orvetta in Owensboro, Kentucky. It turned out she didn't need the baggage for the trip she was taking. The family gathered and sang Amazing Grace at her graveside, and with our grief we could celebrate the good life she had led for 84 years.

We made a family trip to Bent Tree in January which involved the carpeting process.
