How can you put a lifetime of memories out on just one table? Or celebrate on just one occasion? Well the Hoelscher and extended family members, tried to on November 18th, 2006, when they hosted a Celebration of Life Party for 4 very special people. This is their Granny and Grandpa, Uncle and Aunt, Great Aunt and/or Great Uncle. Music played, friends and family came and went, food was served and speeches were made. This was a time to honor Edwin & Glenora Hoelscher and Alton & Willie Mae Koehl. They have lived lives full of family, friends, work and play. It was a surprise party, and they looked like they really enjoyed all the fuss made over them-every single minute of it! I snapped one big picture of the family, and then the table which held some of the things that has meant most to them. On one side there was Willie Mae's accordian and Alton's hard hat he wore while working the gravel pit in Columbus, Texas. And then on the other side of the table, we see Grandpa's (Edwin's) Texaco & MG Feed Caps, and his Sunday-Go-To-Meetin' Black Hat. Granny (Glenora) was represented here as well, with the sun bonnet she wears while working with the plants that she loves. She is really admired for her talent for gardening!
Congratulations to 4 people who may think they don't have much - but in fact are so, so rich, because they have so many people who love and care about them!
