Sad Day

Today we laid to rest my Nephew, Roderick Francis Brown, he was just 56 years old,  Rod was swimming with his 2 Lab Dogs and some friends on the St. Lawrence River,   as they all were coming out of the water Rod was missing, they found him floating in 2 feet of water, their was a doctor, an nurse there but they were unable to revive him, they thought he drowned, an Autopsy showed he died instantly from a massive Heart Attack.
. This my oldest sister Janice and her children,   Rory, Kenneth, Janice, Rod and Gina Brown.
I assisted Rods Aunt doing the service, Rod was creamated as per his wishes, and he was placed in the Family Plot in the Family Cemetery by our family homestead in Pond Settlement.
Pastor Lori did the service call, I sang "Mercy" and we closed the service with people telling their favorite story about Rod.
. Afterwards a lot of people walked the Cemetery and said Hell'o to everyone buried there.     We had children climbing on Head Stones, people going to their cars bringing back water jugs and watering flowers, pulling weeds, picking up papers and trash and wandering, crying, laughing and finally we went back and placed Rods Ashes/remains scattered in the Family Plot.
He will sadly missed by this Uncle.
this is my Borther in Law, Ken Brown, RIP, his grandsons RJ and Cory and my Nephew Rod who we laid to rest today ! 

Don't Forget our Vets!!!
