Linda asked me to post a few additional details:
We have one more place that out-of-town guests could stay:
-Apple Country Bed and Breakfast: (http://applecountryinnbb.com/) Phone: 509-972-3409. They are holding the whole house for us until mid-March at which time they will accept reservations from others as well.
-Located about 1 mile west of our house on the Old Naches Hwy (about 7 miles from the church)
-They have 4 rooms in their house: 2 upstairs (these have a shared bath – if you don’t want to share then they will rent just one room upstairs) and 2 downstairs as well as a 2-person separate cottage.
-When you make reservations let them know you are here for Jay Sloop’s service since they are taking reservations only for us until mid-March
If possible, we also want to plan for meals for out-of-town guests and thus we need to know how many would like to eat with us.
-Friday Supper: For those coming in on Friday I am planning a simple soup/fruit/bread supper at my house
-Sabbath Breakfast: Most of the hotels will provide breakfast, but let me know if you need something – we would be happy to have you here for breakfast as well
-Sabbath Lunch: Visitors potluck at our church (you won’t need to bring food – but I do need an approximate number of people coming for those preparing the food
-Please don’t feel that you are inconveniencing us at all. I have friends from church that will be doing most of the cooking and while the occasion is difficult – time with family and friends is treasured.
Please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you know your plans and let me know which meals you will be here for and how many will be coming with you. Then I will be able to contact you with further details as we have them.
Thank you for coming and sharing your memories of Dad and for your love and support to all of us.
