Barker Family Celebration
I got a chance to see a huge chunk of my father's side of the family this weekend. They had all converged on Waynesboro, VA to memorialize my grandfather who passed earlier this year. We spread his ashes on the Blue Ridge Mountains on Thursday, had his funeral (in a church in the middle of nowhere) on Friday, and celebrated his life on Saturday. I met cousins and twice-baked cousins I never knew I had. Got to meet some of my grandfather's Virginia Military Institute brothers and scoped out a '49 Jag that a member of my gf's British Car Club.
