Old Westbrook Lutheran Church was packed Saturday to honor my dad, Keith Kopperud. If you missed it, the order of service, eulogy, and commemorative slideshow appear here.
Thank you for all the kind words you've sent our way. Funerals have a way of making each of us aware of what it takes to nurture relationships that matter. They take time. They take small gestures. And above all, they require genuine generosity.
There will always be more I could have said to or done for my dad to show him what he meant to me, or what impact he made in his time here. In the end, he will remind me always that we really don't know how much time we get. Every day does matter. Thanks, again.
If inclined, you may honor Keith by contributing to Minnesota Public Radio. Quality radio was in many ways his religion.
When you learn to play an instrument, you're a member of 'the band' for life.
Please contact me for a current mailing address for the family.
