Quick Trip to Minnesota

DadSadly, I made a quick trip to Minnesota last week for my Uncle Russell's funeral. I stayed with my dad for a few days and got back home on Tuesday evening. I took this photo of my dad on Monday afternoon while we were sitting outside waiting for my cousin and his wife to stop by. With all the activity associated with an unexpected death, the trip is still a bit of a blur.

Diane and MeThe service held on Saturday was done very well with pastor John Longley, a long time friend of Russell, officiating. There were quite a few people at the service, many that I didn't know. However, I did have a chance to visit with several people (relatives, old neighbors, parents of folks I went to school with, my 4th grade teacher, etc.) that I hadn't seen in years. After the service, Diane and Dave stopped by to visit for awhile. My dad took this photo of Diane and me.

Just to clarify... this post refers to Diane, one "N", Earl's aunt. Not Dianne, two "N"s, Earl's reason to exist. Although we do share a striking resemblance to each other.

Earl, I'm sorry to hear of your loss.

I'm so sorry to hear the news about Russell. He seemed like such a nice, upbeat, kind of guy when I met him years ago. My heart goes out to your dad as well.
