Funeral at the Alaska Ferry Terminal in Bellingham WA, February 2, 2003

DU's in attendance: Todd Torset, Stayne Hoff, Dave Hipp, Doug Playter, Eddie Uyeta, Mark Thomas, Jeff Krueger, and Karl Dietrich.

A gloomy day at the Ferry Terminal. Hundreds showed up; duct tape arm bands were part of the dress code.

unfortunately the best a disposable camera can do indoors: Dave Hipp, Kelly Jo (Craig Kelly's first wife), and Stayne Hoff, together again for the first time in 15+ years.

This is why you don't ever let a camera get X-rayed when going through airport security...
