Grandpa's Retirement Party

Michael, Mom, Dad, Monica

Grandpa and Maimie

At the end of January my dad retired from Caterpillar with 35 years of service. Earlier this month we threw a retirement party open house to honor him.

Mikaela, Jacob, Joseph

My mom, Mikaela, and Jacob served the cake, punch, and snacks. Joseph greeted our visitors and then was turned loose with the camera.

We had a nice turn out of well-wishers, and everyone signed a Caterpillar t-shirt as a souvenir for Dad to have as a reminder of his day.

Great-Grammie adding her John Hancock

Congratulations, Grandpa!

Such a wonderful, memorable day to finish one phase of my life and begin a new one. The day was so terrific and the family did such a fantastic job of decorating, serving and photographing and greeting. Thank you again for all the hard work and time spent in preparing and executing my retirement party!
In Christian Love,
Grandpa & Grandma
