One of the first places we went after going to our summer home in Lone Tree, Colorado, was to Castle Rock where Olinger Andrews Caldwell Gibson Funeral Home was celebrating the opening of their new facility.
There's a lot of back story here. In 1938 John's parents bought a funeral home in Castle Rock, naming it Andrews Funeral Home. In 1975 we bought the funeral home, owning and managing it until 1984. We raised our two boys there until we sold it in to the Caldwells. Last August we were invited by JR to tour the building before they tore it down. John's sister Cindy and our son Eric and wife Liz joined us that day.
Now that the new building is complete, we were glad to visit. This is the main chapel area.
The apartment is only slightly smaller than our Arizona home.
And we have our own washer and dryer.
Colorado is especially beautiful at this time of year. There is still snow on the higher mountain ranges but we don't have to worry about it.
