July 29, 2012: I am deeply saddened to report that my nephew died from an accident on the Truckee River family rafting event.   He jumped into the water to bring the raft to shore, but went underwater.  His brother-in-law jumped in, and performed CPR, but never regained consciousness.   After a few days in the hospital, and without any brain activity, my brother told the doctors to discontinue all life support efforts.    My nephew was at the peak of his career, practicing law in a small town in north-eastern California, and had a good chance to win a Superior Court Judge position.   Here's his statement: 
 
I serve as Lassen Superior Court Family Law Facilitator and Judge of Lassen Teen Court and have worked as senior research attorney for Judges Bradbury and Sokol.  With 16 years of law experience, I am qualified to serve you as Superior Court Judge. 

He leaves behind his wife and three daughters.   This was our family's first tragedy.

This trip was primarily to attend my nephew's wedding in Chandler, North Carolina.  My brother and the bride's parents took care of the accommodations and some meals while we were in/and around Asheville and Hendersonville for three days.  My sister, niece, and I, continued onto Washington DC for a short vacation after the wedding. 

My brother, Alan, was a good host, and took me around to see Chimney Rock Park, Carl Sandburg's home, and pretty much provided shuttle service to all the events during the three
days.

The wedding was one of the biggest I have ever attended.   They had seven bridesmaids, a maid of honor, seven groomsmen, and the best man.  They had a string ensemble at the wedding, and a orchestra at the reception.   The reception was held at the Biltmore Estate.  Must have cost a pretty penny.
