Well, he's off! He left us with a big grin on his face. I think he was tired of all the good-byes and ready to be on his way. With 4 little (some not so little) brothers looking on. Mom did it with grace.

Thanks to those who came by to say good-bye in the past few days. If any of you took pictures, we would love to have some for his scrapbook. You can email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
