last thoughts

There's a really nice piece on Volma's funeral in today's Statesman, along with some heartbreaking photos. And if you haven't seen the really nice article on his life from earlier this week, it's here, with the editorial here. The Statesman did a wonderful job of covering Volma's legacy and amazing life this week.

Today at All Saints' Day at church we read the names of those who've died this year, and, like we always do, said, "Thanks be to God" after each one. It was harder today than it usually is, because we've had a lot of loss this week. But how blessed we are.

Email the Austin ISD trustees and ask them to name the new elementary school that's set to be built on the Mueller airport site in Volma's honor. It's an honor long overdue and a very fitting tribute.
