Grandma Cheatham's Viewing & Funeral

This posting is for the close family and friends and anyone else who cares to see pictures of the viewing and funeral and my intentions are not to offend anyone.

Wednesday evening from 4 to 8 p.m. was the viewing in Frankfort, IN. Thursday morning was the funeral at 10 a.m. They had the funeral dinner immediately following the service and then the burial was about 1 1/2 hours away near Shelbyville/Franklin, IN at 3:30 p.m.

Following the viewing Wednesday evening, 31 of us went out to eat to Pepe's Mexican Restaurant there in Frankfort, IN. Thanks to Nathan Easley - our wonderful cousin - for treating every single one of us and only requesting that we all leave the tip. Thanks! We had a great time and was able to spend some fun times together during unfortunate circumstances. Family is a great thing!

I really enjoyed this post, it shows how much you all loved your Grandma! The pictures of the family members are going to be priceless some day and the pictures of the flowers close up, are just beautiful!

The headstone of the oldest lady in the U.S. i believe it is not only the U.S. but the entire world.

So sorry to hear of your loss. We weren't able to make it Wednesday night to the viewing but you were in our thoughts.

About the oldest lady - anonymous is right -- she became the oldest in the entire world just a week or so ago when the oldest, who lived in Japan, died.

So cool about the oldest person! Thanks for including that!

Thanks so much for the pics of the funeral. Helps us to know what all happened. I feel bad for the family here, but they seem to be doing pretty good.
