We are home again after one of the most bizarre trips of my life. Imagine 600-800 Mennonites trying to descend on a small Montana town while the worst blizzard in many years descends with them. Here's a news story. And here.

The funeral was postponed several times, then held, finally, on Thursday afternoon. Neil was always uncomfortable with a lot of attention and it almost felt like he had made sure that we were all seriously distracted from focusing on his passing.

It was a beautiful and soothing service.

We finally made it home again. We remember the young widow and all the ones close to Neil who have a long long journey still ahead.

Thank you so much for all your prayers.
