PICTURE SHOW: PERSONAL FAMILY SLIDES FROM JOHN F. KENNEDY'S FUNERAL


Happy Monday, Blogland!

In my Life: Remembering John F. Kennedy blog post on Friday, the 50th Anniversary of his death, I mentioned that my dad was in Washington DC for his funeral.  

He was at Purdue University, getting his degree in Engineering, in Indiana when he decided to drive down to DC with friends the day after President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas.

My dad found the slides of pictures he had taken from his funeral, which took place 50 years ago today on November 25, 1963, which he scanned and sent to the family, and I wanted to share them here for memory sake and as a little piece of history.
All images taken by father John Ehardt III on November 25, 1963 at JFK's funeral in Washington DC.
