Grandpa Utter

This was a Christmas present for my mom.  It was her dad. 

My grandfather Thomas Utter was one of the captains of the riverboat Delta Queen.  That riverboat has quite a history but she ceased her duties at the end of 2008. My mom was able to take one of the final trips aboard the Delta Queen and even got to meet with the captain.  On February 11, 2009, Delta Queen arrived in Chattanooga, Tennessee to become a floating boutique hotel.
