Hi George,
I think you already know that my Dad passed away yesterday.  I have been waiting to solidify arrangements before I contacted you.  We are just waiting to hear from my nephew who is stationed in Germany to confirm everything.  The Red Cross is looking into flying him home for the services but we are not sure if they have restrictions on when he can arrive and/or needs to go back so that may cause us to rearrange our plans.  Our plans so far is as follows:
Saturday, August 2, 2014
Wilkinson Bean Funeral Home
164 Pleasant Street
Laconia, NH
Wake:  10:00 - 11:00 a.m.
Service:  11:00 - 11:30 a.m.
Lunch - 79 Wild Acres Road, Gilford, NH
I will confirm everything with you as soon as I know more.  In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or need additional information at this point.
Best wishes,
