|May 22||Bill returned to Colorado and we continued the process of closing down the house.|
|May 21||I called the Registrar of wills and learned that the processing of Margaret’s estate is beyond my expertise and sent an email to Vic. We went out to the family cemetery and celebrated the interment. We had a conference call with Vic and he will handle the processing of the estate. We will empty the house and I will transfer the utility bills. Vic expects the initial processing and the release of the accounts to be done quickly though the final process will take 6-9 months.|
|May 20||SKDL left at 0930 and Bill arrived moments later. He and Lew went out to the cemetery and pronounced it ready for tomorrow’s interment. Linda’s return flight was 90 minutes late getting out of PHL.|
|May 19||Lew, Bill and I left at 1000 for Forest Grove Church. We had a very nice service, well attended. Kate’s eulogy followed mine and Billy, from Jerry Fletcher Catering, supplied dinner for 70.|

From there, we picked up Lew and Kate and went to 823 to confirm the distribution of the contents of the house. Jerry, Linda and Elaine came after 2 and we visited. Lew, Bill and I went to Holloway at 1600 for the viewing. We had a nice turnout and came back to the house after 7 for more family time.|
