Its storytime

Its Sunday and I am still pretty tired from the two day funeral...  Catholics sure know how to make a funeral seem like a week long event!

I have a bunch of stories to tell about the two days but I am still kinda tired... My house is starting to get empty again... Collin just left to go back to Arizona to school, Pam [Sam's Cousin and her grandson Corey] just left also...

 
So I think I will tell you a story and then take a nap...
 
After we had the Rosary at the church, we were visiting with friends... One of them was a school friend of Sam's Dennis McCormick  [they attended the catholic school together... and Sam made altar boy of the year at this same church]  so anyway... I asked Dennis "when did they put the baptism bath up by the altar?" 
[Its was a baptism bath made for adults! The thing must have been 5ft by 4 ft... marble and filled with water]
So he explained the story behind it... etc... See the baptism bath use to be a small round tub used for both adults and babies... and it was never on the altar it was in the back of church, and brought up to the altar during ceremonies...
 
Anyway, it was a trip to see this huge marble bath up by the altar...
 
The next day after giving my speech for Dad... we were having food at the celebration of life for Clancy in the reception hall at the church when my son Kameron came up to me and hugged me
"Mom you did a really great job up there saying that speech for Grampa"
"Awww Kameron thank you, I was so nervous... did you seemy legs shaking?"
"No, but I could tell you were nervous...
I was saying a prayer you didn't fall into the Jesus Jacuzzi!"
