My nephew Tyler was buried on Wednesday. Here’s the newspaper article. The obituary is online also, as well as a memorial guestbook.

Update: The Sunday Oregonian article is online, as well as couple of pictures.

The funeral was held at the Linn County Fair and Expo Center, around 700 people attended.

My brother Galen opened the service.

Oregon Governor Kulongoski spoke. He also presented Tyler’s mom with the Purple Heart awarded to Tyler.

A Marine Honor Guard served as pallbearers.

The Marines gave a 21-gun salute at the graveside.
