Wow, what a ride!!!

Opi passed away May 5, 2007. He was the foundation of faith for our family. His optimism lifted all those around him. Whenever he was asked how he was doing he would reply, "I couldn't be better!" or "Ich könnte nicht besser sein!"

He followed a lovely quote about reaching the end of our mortal lives. He added it to his life story:
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming, 'Wow, what a ride!!!'
