We had been anticipating our trip to Hawaii for nearly a year. We enjoyed the adventure with hundreds of band kids, directors, and chaperones. As the header picture shows, it was absolutely gorgeous. This was a view from our hotel balcony and you can see the beautiful pool and just behind that is the ocean. Out the front door of the hotel was a city with lots of action going on. It was just the best of both worlds. I was impressed with how kind the people were and how clean the beach and the city were kept. It was just a great place to spend our spring break.

Well, I attended another funeral today. They sure make you rethink your goals in life. This one was for a dear sweet lady who loved everyone. The service was packed with lots of people whom she had touched in her life. She taught me how to weld which is definitely an odd hobby for a female. She also did ceramics and loved flowers. She sent out sticks of gum and a birthday card to everyone she knew - something all my children looked for in the mail. Today, along with the program, the ushers gave everyone a stick of gum. She has truly stuck to me like gum and I hope I can pass along just some of the love she has shown others.
