(A tribute published in the pages of Ashland Daily Independent, May 21, 1974) I would like to note that my grandfather's viewing was at his home, this was the only viewing I ever remember being at a private home, and my mom made the comment about all the kids "sitting up" through the night, which as a child, I thought was kinda freaky! The kids also walked from the church to the cemetary behind the hearse, and I don't ever remember that happening again, after my grandfather's funeral.
