Thanks to everyone who has called/emailed/texted me today. My Grandpa Clarence W. Strandberg passed away quickly early this morning at the age of 90 after a two week illness. It was certainly his time to go, but of course it still comes as a shock to the rest of us. The funeral will be on Monday morning at 11:00 in New Richmond, and he will be buried at 2:00 at the Hill Side cemetery in Minneapolis. For more information on arrangements, click here.
I will write more later, but it makes me so happy that he was able to be fully present at our wedding just 26 days ago. I know in my heart he was holding on for it, and had a wonderful time with all the family that was present.
