Saturday we had a funeral. Our first as a RS presidency. Thankfully, we have Kristen, an amazing lady who is our compassionate service funeral team leader. She was so organized, so it made the day go quite smoothly.
I got a call on Friday from the daughter, who was helping coordinate the funeral for her dad. She said they wanted to have donuts to pass out after the funeral. Her dad lived on Coke and donuts, and all the grandkids knew that if they stayed over with their Grandparents, they would have coke and donuts for breakfast.
So, on Saturday, one of the brothers brought in about 400 donuts from Lehi bakery.
Once the funeral started, we set these up on both sides of the chapel, so that people could pick up a donut on the way out. It was just a fun reminder of Gary, a way of remembering a great man.
And boy were they yummy donuts! I didn’t eat a donut, but I did in fact have several donut holes.
I’m thankful that things went smoothly that day. It was a long day, and hard work, but we were happy to serve.
