Rivet At All Times, Keep Music In Your Heart's !!!!

My Mom had the best singing voice in our family, however as a base singer backup, I 'want too shabby either!...
Brother Bob has a great voice too, and could play the guitar, so's we often broke into song along our journey west.

Now, when ever the prairie dogs started to get louder than us, we'd just shut the doors, and keep right on a'sang'in!

S'more antique photos.

Smile The Troupe, And More Sightseeing...

There are so many places to enjoy across this wonderful Country! We all got to see them first hand, from coast to coast.

Through 19 States and Washington DC , Gettysburg Memorial Battleground, Dinosaur National Park, Mount Rushmore, Wisconsin Dells just to mention a few.
We were pretty lucky as a family to have been able to share these treats together!

Hi, just curious about what happened when you made it to California. Was the Magic Carpet permanently mounted somewhere? Did your family live in it for a short time? Or was it your home for many years? Or was it sold and never seen again?

Hi, we haven't even started Christmas shopping; Actually haven't even thought about it yet.

OK I'll wait, since you promised to eventually let us know.

Read this, and I will get back to you... LIFE - Google Books

Most of us lived in the Magic Carpet for close to two years out in California before we bought a house without wheels...

Sorry to keep you waiting.
With Love

Never Easy Saying Goodby...

Before leaving Stoneham MA...

We enjoy many friends, and have a large support group, however it was not our intent to leave any, and yet, this is a part of Life...
Remain together always along the way!

Keep within our heart's, all whom remain there!

Another Antique photo... From Left, to right... Dad, Mom, Pastor Henderson, Sister Doņa, Brother Mel and Sister June.

Tribute To Sister June...

June Ann Reuter
August 05, 1933 - October 08, 2010

We all love you!... Terry

Tribute created by: Joyce Reuter
A Memorable Quote:
"Jesus said "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; 26and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.
Full Tribute:
I wanted to Thank you all for the care you brought into our lives for the last few days of my Mothers Life. She is my Mother-My biggest Fan-My fervent supporter and My best friend. Born in 1933 to Frederick Daniel Rugg and Annie Brigette, my mom was the oldest of 11 children. She met and married my father Harold Reuter in California in the early 50s. I was born in 1960 and am the only child and truly blessed to be so. My Mom did everything she could to help people whenever there was a need. She ran 2 different facilities for people who needed assistance for over 28 years. She gave of her time, and her pocketbook, and her heart most of all. Her 4 grandchildren, myself and her 4 great-grandchildren were her world and her life. We are all truly grateful to have been so blessed to be a part of her life. Near the end my Mom could hardly see. I am reminded of my Fathers favorite songstress Fanny Cosby who always wrote of the day she would see her Saviours face. I know that my Mom is at peace with the Lord and with my Father who is the Love of her Life.
Words from Fanny Crosby:

Some day the silver cord will break,
And I no more as now shall sing.
But, O, the joy when I shall wake
Within the palace of the King!
And I shall see Him face to face,
And tell the story — saved by grace.

Some day my earthly house will fall,
I cannot tell how soon ‘twill be,
But this I know — my All in All
Has now in heaven a place for me,
And I shall see Him face to face,
And tell the story — saved by grace.

Pictures,
Sister June At Work In California.

Terry I am so sorry to hear of your sister, June's passing. What a rich life you all have led together and apart, more than that no one could have. The tribute you shared is beautiful. May God strengthen you through this difficult time and ease your grief until you meet again.
