A Utah Funeral.







Grave site later that day. Very peaceful.

When we attended Pa's viewing on Friday, our mood was heavy with reality. It was quiet and solemn as we entered the viewing room and walked past our loved one. But as we came back out into the hall, a flurry of voices could be heard. The hall was completely full of the Radman family that Pa had created. There were cousins and siblings who loved each other, tossing back smiles and laughter. It was a room of love fit for a king and I think we knew who would have loved it most.

Just beautiful. What more can I say. I love the one of Nanna Radman's hands. I think sometimes hands are better "potraits" of a person's life than faces. Give my love to everyone.

It's sad when our families get together for funerals...but it is amazing when we get together. It was good seeing you at cafe rio.

I can't say how much I love your pictures. Your tribute brought tears to my eyes - made me remember the wonderful experience being together with family at my grandfather's funeral. Thanks for sharing.
