With a lot of help from many people, we were able to get the luminaries set up, in-place, and lit before six o’clock. We ran out of sand to weight the bags before we made it around the circle, but there were over 200 luminaries burning in the two cul-de-sacs and part-way down the circle. Susan had purchased special, angel luminaries that burned brightly in front of George’s and Ish’s former homes, and they were quite a sight to behold. There will be some pictures for you this afternoon or tomorrow, depending on when I get them emailed to me. My camera battery died before I could take any photos. Murphy’s Law, I suppose. We enjoyed a wonderful meal together, with many thanks to Cindy and Lyndon, who provided all of the food and a wonderful, roaring fire to enjoy. At one point, we walked down to George’s house and sang “Silent Night” together. It was a sweet moment that we know George would have enjoyed very much. We’ll all miss him very much.
