Tiffany and Jason flew in from Illinois. Nathan, Desiree, and the two grandkids drove in to be here. Cliff and Marilyn made the trek from Nebraska, and helped us a great deal in the days leading up to the event. Then over a 100 people from Colorado and neighboring states showed up.
The lady that coordinated it did an outstanding job. She bought a print and had it framed as a going away present. She also used that picture on the announcements and the cake.
I asked that it be a casual affair - show up when you can, leave when you must. It was. Some people stayed an hour, some for the whole thing, some stayed an hour after it was over.
I ended a great career with a great celebration. Thanks to everyone who attended.
