Casket Final Picture

On Tuesday 02-02-2016 my Dad ( James Woods Wheatcroft ) passed away and joined my Mom in Heaven . I had more relief than grief because he was in so much pain and suffering . Sitting in a wheel chair all day . I took the casket to the Funeral Home and then on Friday we all met at the cemetery for a Veterans Memorial .After the Memorial , Myself , my brother Rick and my brother Jerry each hammered a brass nail through the lid into the vertical handrail supports to seal the casket . May he rest in peace . Love you Pop .
