I have the very sad duty of announcing that Centurian Othar Morganson's
(Jerry Dreifuerst)  Grandma  passed away early Sunday morning, following a
stroke.   'Grandma'  of Stargate (mka Velda Brandenburg)  will be
remembered by many in the Coastal area, as Othar brought her along with him
to many SCA functions, including several bus rides to the Gulf War.   She
often surprised many of us, that despite her advanced age, her quick wit
and humor were very sharp, focused and contemporary!

Memories include seeing her standing on the porch of the Gulf War cabin
reviewing the fighters as they marched off to war, or in the front of the
bus, as Othar called to her 'Grandma, start the wave', as we proceeded to
follow her lead, and did the spirit-wave in the bus on the way to Gulf
Wars... over and over again.   She will be remembered!
