Memorials & all that jazz

Yesterday, me & the girls went to Mike Chittom's Memorial service. It was beautiful. held at First United methodist church in downtown. What a gorgeous building. Huge stone arches, carved wood altar & pulpit, beaitiful stained glass art. They had a singer performing Amazing Grace, his voice sent chills down my spine. His sister did a very moving eulogy & they showed a film, featuring him & the Celia Clinton kids, wonderful.:o)
At the end however , was the best part, his band performed Dixieland jazz rendition of 'A Closer Walk with thee."
I cant think of a better way to send him out!
