Good-bye to Inge Østrup

Inge Østrup and her husband, John Thomsen  have been coming to the temple ever Friday morning since we arrived.  She has been fighting cancer for 10 years and finally they ran out of new treatments.  We will miss her.  She was an amazing help at the Family History Center, always upbeat and fun, a real inspiration.
  Jim stayed at the temple and I went out to the funeral with the Buurs.
 Funerals seem to be a bit more casual here.  Maybe people don't have Sunday clothes anymore.
She and John loved bird watching.  John has made many of us wonderful little wooden birds.  Just before the funeral he placed this little bird on the coffin.
