Dear All,

We had what I think was a successful day on Friday. The Patera and Wisbeck families arrived from Seattle the day before, Nina and John Patera's daughter and granddaughter came up from Virginia. They stayed at the Springhill Hotel on Horse Block Road, they  got to see our nationally infamous landfill. 

We all arrived at the refuge a little past 11 in the morning and, after introductions, walked down the carriage road to the cemetery. Attached are some pictures taken by John and I. 

Nina Patera, pink sweater, and Will Wisbeck, tall fellow standing behind her (sister and brother), are the only two great grandchildren of Erastus C. Hawkins.

L-r- John, granddaughter Michaela and Nina Patera, Kathy and William Wisbeck, and Christina Patera:  

Beautiful day, 60ยบ.
