The “Celebration of Life” for Marcia Julia Rudie Osberg, which was held last Friday, was great.  Had we scheduled the event for Saturday instead of Friday, the tent that we got from General Rental in Albany would have ended up in Bowlus.  One report was of a home owner on Cedar Lake losing 50 trees to the storm that came through central Minnesota on Saturday morning. 

Miller Carlin Funeral Homes did a great job.  The tent was pitched in Borgstrom Park next door to the funeral home.  Jordie’s Trail Side Café from Bowlus catered the affair. 

The music was provided by the Harren Sisters who were part of the original Rainbow Children, a group that Marcia had created to provide music for the Saturday night Guitar Mass at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Upsala. They were accompanied by Pat Hamilton a professional singer and guitar player from Colorado .  Pat is the sister of my brother Brian’s wife Jean Marie Hamilton. 

The eulogy was presented by our son Erik.  (A copy of the text is attached)    Erik and Jena’s daughter Leah followed her dad and even provided the various voices that Marcia used to address her loved ones. 

Be sure to hug your loved ones often.  We never know when we will leaving this wonderful world.

“Oh pfft, they’re great kids, they’ll be fine.”   Marcia Osberg
