03August2014_5c-Portland-Trip_Brenda-Memorial_Flowers-2The primary reason for us going to Portland August 1 – 4 was to attend the memorial service for Brenda. She and Robin graduated from nursing school together. They worked a while until their RN license came through and then left for the West, via Mexico City in a VW Bug. Camping gear strapped on the roof. Robin ended in San Francisco, where she also helped to start Ravenswood Winery with Joel Peterson, and Brenda went to Oregon. It was great that we could attend this Celebration of Life. Here are some photos from the event. Left-Click any of them to see the photo enlarged.
