Using the blog to provide information on services for Loyce.....

For those that will be able to attend, the service will be in Des Moines, Iowa...  Where we lived for 40 plus years.....

Loyce is being transferred today, Tuesday, to Des Moines to the Merle Hay Funeral Home, and services will be Friday during the day...   We don't have a time yet...

We are trying to come in the night before so we can have some kind of a get together at a hotel somewhere....    Melissa is looking into which hotel this morning...

Chris and I are driving, right now to Des Moines to set up the services...  and see the available interment plots....

More as we get this done.....
