We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessings…

Airfare for a week away being what it is, it’s just me going.

Two funerals were scheduled for my uncle, who had been a three-term Senator: one in the Washington, DC area (I almost, almost… But it just cost too much. JetBlue wanted $1087 one way, Southwest, about $400 per) and one in Salt Lake City.

Here is the text of a lovely talk given in Virginia.

As for the funeral in Salt Lake, that one I get to go to. If you don’t hear from me for a few days here, no worries; I’ll be surrounded by family and making memories for life.

Safe travels, and may the blessing of family help ease your loss.

What a tribute to such an inspirational man. Thank you for including that link.
Like Pegi says, safe travels.

Sorry again for your family’s loss, and that we didn’t overlap in SLC. I would have loved to have been able to give you a (gentle) hug at this time.

Safe travels.

Being surrounded by family is the best. I look forward to read about the good times you are able to share upon your return.
