Celebration of Life

Thanks to all readers of this blog who have tolerated my several posts about brother Rod.  Writing has been therapeutic - and enjoyable.  The enjoyment has come as we've recalled good times with Rod and some of his funniest antics and escapades. 

The funeral was indeed a celebration of his life.  One of Rod's trademarks was a bright Hawaiian-style shirt.  Well, not one -- but many.  Mom said she counted 42 of those shirts in his closet.  He never wore anything other kind.

So, as part of the celebration of Rod's life, we wore shirts out of Rod's closet.

In Fellowship Hall at St. Peter's Lutheran Church after the funeral.
