the spring day had shown itself to be a bit weathery, overcast with
a cool breeze. Inside the HTB could be felt the warmth that accompanies
friends gathering together. The monthly Tonkawa meeting and luncheon
was being held here in part to Honor our long time friend and Tonkawa
member Roy and commemorate his life. To accomplish this we wanted
to meet at the HTB and include several of his friends he ate with
and shared his life nearly every day. It gave us all a chance to
meet them and 'break bread' together. In doing so it was easy to
see why these were valuable relationships to him and that all mutually
were blessed and benefited.
missed Ms Vicki who was a bit under the weather but she sent Richard
with 'an envelope' so we didn't have to wash dishes for our eats.
By the way folks seemed to find something they liked and worked
their way toward the dessert table maybe for some warm cobbler to
take the edge off the weather. Many found themselves without utensils.
It seemed they had not started at the very front by the salads and
had skipped ahead to the main dishes. Some even were heard to ask
'where's the silverware' which kind of gave them away. We prepared
a plate for Roy at the table trying to get those things we knew
he liked. Even doughnuts with sprinkles appeared - often referred
to by him as (W)holy food. We hope he enjoyed our choices.
latest edition of Indian Times was circulated as it has his last
story published inside. He will long be remembered and missed. May
the Creator continue to watch over him in his journey and be with
us all as we continue ours.
spring calendar is sprinkled with events in the local area. We hope
to see each other again at many of them.
