  4. Tuesday visitation went well. Family very happy with our attendance. Heard many times how Donald was so proud of his time in the National Guard. He would sing “Taps” on Memorial Day at the Abbotsford ceremony every year. Three of us standing: Scott from Wittenberg and Greg from Chippewa Falls.
    Wednesday service and internment also went very well. Funeral Home director gave me a thank you card from the family with a nice donation inside. Presented the plaque and five dog tags just before the service. We did an escort to the cemetery. Local Legion did the Honors. One of the sons sang “Taps” in honor of his Father. Four of us standing: Scott and Greg again and Paul from New London joined us.
