I don’t know what to say, so pardon my obliqueness.

When Kate told me the news I booked a flight back to Minnesota for the following day.

That was a week ago last Friday.

Kate and I went canoeing. We visited with friends. We went to the zoo. We picked strawberries.

The service was this past Saturday. It was at the arboretum. It was beautiful.

Everyone is doing remarkably well, all things considered.

I arrived back in Hood River today. Kate leaves for Menogyn tomorrow.

Thank you.
