Lynn's Comments: Even now, I look at the exquisite patterns made by the clouds, and on days when the setting sun turns them to pink and purple and orange, I really do imagine that angels live within them.
Lynn's Comments: My mom called from the airport as soon as Aaron arrived in Vancouver. She said he was very sick. As it turned out, he'd noticed that many passengers did not eat their chocolate desserts and asked the hostess if he could have them all. Thinking he'd never eat ALL the desserts, they happily gave them to him and neglected to check back until he was too full to do up his seatbelt. He arrived in Vancouver engorged and miserable. My folks were too thoughtful to laugh--but we sure did!
Lynn's Comments: Rod and his friends waved with all the energy they had left as the Hercules circled overhead. The big hatch on the belly of the plane was lowered and a streamer was thrown out. The men ran to the place where the streamer landed and retrieved a capsule with a message in it. They were to stay where they were and await the arrival of an aircraft that could land at the site. The huge plane then circled away from the men and dropped a parachute bearing a huge box. Three SARTECHs (Search and Rescue Technicians) then jumped after it. The men on the ground watched them land, pull in their parachutes, and begin quickly to open the box, erect a tent, and organize a living space inside.
Lynn's Comments: The real story did not include the wives as this illustration suggests. I waited with our family for the men to be flown in to the Lynn Lake float plane base, while the other women waited at home.
