We had a very good day in Winona, Minnesota yesterday. The service for Uncle Dale was nice, a good lunch by the church ladies, and a bit chilly at the graveside. Dale is the uncle of my best friends Roche & LeAnna. He was my good friend. He passed away on March 6th after a brief illness.
After the graveside service, 8 of us, 7 cousin's and me, took a trolley ride around Winona. Uncle Dale had wanted to do that and it was planned for us the gather in May and take this ride with Dale . So, the wife of one of the cousins got it organized on the spur of the moment. It was a 2 hour historical & scenic city tour including a trip up on a bluff to a scenic overlook.
The driver was a local character with no front teeth but a pleasing delivery. The ride gave us all more time to chit chat and it was interesting & fun. When we were done with the trolley ride, it was supper time, so we 8 went to eat and spent more time visiting.
So we had a really great day, all for Uncle Dale.
I got home to Rice Lake at about 10pm.
