The minister used the sermon to charge the young people there with looking out for one another so this type of tragedy doesn't have to happen again. I think the message will stick - at least for awhile. Two hockey teammates (one of whom was a teammate to Engineering Guy) gave very eloquent eulogies as they shared stories of growing up together. I was proud of those two young men as they did something that nobody that age should have to do. Engineering Guy is too far away to attend but I know this has affected him quite deeply.
Jen - we are going to the Galapagos for our trip. It's a place I have always wanted to visit. I figured I better go now before I become too old and doddery!
