The service was presented beautifully. The music was very good. It was at University of Puget Sound Field House. Booth Gardner had gone to the University of Washington, as I am sure many others at the memorial had, and as I had.
I remembered going to the Governor’s Writers Day in 1986, as a Washington Author, my book Shelter had been published by Dragon Gate in 1985. I was with my publisher Gwen Head that day. And with others. After the ceremony in the outdoors - and I think a photo was taken of all the Washington Authors -we were invited to go into the Governor’s Mansion to see it, a small group of us walked along the approach to the mansion, and inside the mansion we admired the beautiful historic old rooms. The governor was Booth Gardner then.
