I am sure you all feel our loss. My brother Odin had a very amazing funeral which was attended by lots of people. Some people delayed their flights to be there for his funeral. There were four priests officiating at his funeral. Father John who did the homily was a good friend of the family and knew Odin well. He compared his life to a very interesting book which you could not put down. Vanessa did a wonderful eulogy. The weather was warm and sunny at the burial and all day. We have lost a very integral and important part of our family. If any of us had a need for him to be there, he was always ready. We did butt heads with him from time to time as he did not always follow the rules that we wanted him to play by. We thank you for your prayers and caring. We know that you share in our loss.
Diana and all the family in Canada
